Funding for school maintenance
A State Government funding announcement last week has allocated $659,137 to schools throughout the Hindmarsh local government area for maintenance and repair works.

Every government school in Victoria is receiving a share of the $515-million investment.

Member for Western Victoria Jaala Pulford said that the funding will enable schools to do essential works such as painting, replacing carpet and windows, landscaping, tree inspections and maintenance of infrastructure like septic systems and water services.

Ms Pulford also said that schools in some of the state’s highest-risk bushfire areas will also have access to more funds to ensure they are ‘bushfire ready’, thanks to $44.2 million over five years for fire preparedness activities like vegetation removal.

Dimboola Memorial Secondary College is the only of the schools in Hindmarsh to receive this fire preparedness funding, with $23,956 on the way for this purpose.

Each of the five schools are receiving a share of funding for electrical safety switch upgrades, as well as money specifically earmarked for grounds maintenance.

Dimboola Memorial Secondary College, Rainbow P-12 College and Nhill College are all also receiving money towards gas supply upgrades.

Funding Allocation
  • Dimboola Memorial Secondary College - $208,484
  • Dimboola Primary School - $62,908
  • Jeparit Primary School - $43,773
  • Nhill College - $187,293
  • Rainbow P-12 College - $156,299
