Pool funding for Bunbury school

Michael PhilippsSouth Western Times

Bunbury’s College Row School will benefit from a $200,000 investment announced today by Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery.

The funding would expand access to the school’s hydrotherapy pool to current and past students and the broader community.

It would also help determine opportunities for a playgroup community hub.

The investment will ensure students continue to have access to the benefits of the hydrotherapy pool after they have graduated, giving them greater opportunities to connect with current students.

Ms Ellery said every WA student deserved a first-class education.

“This investment will ensure students continue to benefit well after they graduate,” she said.

“College Row is a fantastic school and a big part of the local community, providing a vital service for young students with varying disability.”

Bunbury MLA Don Punch said the decision would be warmly welcomed by the community.

“I congratulate all associated with College Row School for their community spirit and willingness to initiate projects that will allow more members of our community to benefit from their specialist skills and facilities,” he said.

The funding would be delivered in 2018-19.
