Students at Moonambel Primary now have the inclusive, safe and modern recreational facilities they need thanks to an investment by the Andrews Labor Government.
Premier Daniel Andrews today visited the school to officially open its new sensory play equipment and activity space, which was made possible thanks to $66,000 from Labor Government’s Inclusive Schools Fund.
Students can now learn in an enclosed outdoor area and enjoy sensory play equipment including a chair spinner and stand-up spinner, which helps children develop physical coordination, strength and flexibility.
The sensory materials incorporated into the playground design promote inclusivity and cater for students with additional needs.
The Inclusive Schools Fund supports small innovative building projects that make a big difference to meeting the educational and social needs of children and young people with disabilities and additional needs.
Since it was established in 2015, the $40 million Inclusive Schools Fund has supported more than 180 creative projects to build inclusive play spaces, outdoor learning areas and sensory gardens.
The Labor Government is building the Education State so that every student can access a great local school and get a great education.
