A Boost For Bellarine Secondary College

Bellarine Secondary College will receive funding from the Victorian Governments Accessible Buildings Program, to improve school facilities and infrastructure that supports students and staff with disabilities

Member for Bellarine Lisa Neville today announced that Bellarine Secondary has been allocated funding from the Accessible Buildings Program to promote inclusive learning environments, through improved access to modern and functional learning spaces.

The funding will assist Bellarine Secondary in making   modifications to its buildings, including bathrooms and ramps to ensure students and staff where necessary have better access to the school facilities, in line with their peers and colleagues.

The program adjusts existing facilities to meet the needs of those with existing disabilities, as well as disabilities that occur as a result of an accident or the deterioration of existing conditions.

Under the State Government’s school building boom, a total of 100 new schools will open by 2026, ensuring every child can access a great local school where students can achieve their best.

Since 2015, it has invested more than $6.1 billion to deliver new primary and secondary schools, and upgrade more than 1,400 existing ones.
