A local primary school will recieve $650,000 to outfit classrooms with new technology.
Inglewood Primary School will be redesigned to allow for more spacious and open classrooms.
They will also get a chance to use new interactive whiteboards.
The funding comes thanks to a state government boost.
Minister for Education Martin Dixon said the new refurbishments will make the school an inspiring place for learning and teaching.
“The school’s new open plan classrooms that link with outside learning areas will provide teachers with new ways to engage their students," he said.
As part of the upgrade a classroom has been opened up to flow from one section to the other.
Funding will also include an outside learning area and an inside area that allows for whole school activities.
“Schools are at the centre of their communities and such improvements play a key role in supporting the wonderful teaching and learning that is taking place in Victorian government schools,” Mr Dixon said.
Mr Dixon said the open plan design of the building would also help support the school’s successful Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden program.
“The open design of the building is a natural fit for the Kitchen Garden program, allowing learning to flow from the inside to the outside,” he said.
All students in Grade 5 and 6 students each have access to a netbook computer that they use for research and collaboration.Earlier this year the school held a parent forum to promote the use of computer technology.
