FOR the first time in 30 years, Inverell Public School’s successful Early Intervention Program will have its own permanent classroom, with Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall today announcing a $200,000 State Government grant for the project.
Currently delivered out of a demountable classroom, Mr Marshall said it was important for student development that the program had its very own special learning environment in which to grow and flourish.
“Inverell Public School does an outstanding job preparing children with additional learning or physical needs to attend Kindergarten,” Mr Marshall said.
“A permanent building will be constructed to replace the current demountable classroom, and will have space to cater for two permanent staff, one additional support staff and students.
“The classroom will facilitate students receiving individualised learning and social opportunities within a supportive environment.
“Inverell Public School staff liaise with local preschools, day-care, families and carers across Inverell and surrounding towns, to ensure every child has the best possible start to their school education journey as possible.
“Due to the scale of the project it could be twelve months before the project is complete, with work hoped to take place over the extended holidays at Christmas.
“I recognise Principal Ally Campbell and Deputy Principal Aleasha Tutt for submitting this important project for funding and look forward to the positive educational benefits it delivers to Inverell’s families.”
This program is part of the NSW Governments economic stimulus response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The NSW Government is investing $7 billion over the next four years, continuing its program to deliver more than 200 new and upgraded schools to support communities across NSW. This is the largest investment in public education infrastructure in the history of NSW.
