NANNEELLA Estate Primary School’s 115-year-old building is getting a facelift.
And it’s all thanks to the school’s $90,000 share of the central Victorian schools $22.8 million funding allocation in the Victorian budget.
Principal Ian Denson said the the funding will go towards building maintenance and renovations.
‘‘The funding will be used to bring the building up to the needs of the 21st century,’’ he said.
‘‘The school collated a wish list and an asset management plan which was submitted to Victorian School Building Authority.
‘‘Echuca’s Brandrick Architects are managing the project.’’
Director of Brandrick Architects Gerard Brandrick said the funds would be used to modernise the building.
‘‘Considering the age of the building we are making good some holes in the floors, upgrading the joinery and forming a new area for the principal’s office — at the moment there is no specific space for the principal to call an office,’’ he said.
‘‘We are hoping to start construction in school holidays as not to disrupt the students learning and have it completed by the 2018 school year.’’
