Students at Melton Primary School can take their learning outside, following the opening for eight new outdoor spaces.

Hawke MP Sam Rae visited the school last week to open the learning spaces.

The federal government provided $39,000 for the installation of the eight outdoor learning spaces, as part of its $240 million Schools Upgrade Fund.

The learning spaces will provide all year levels with more opportunities to experience the natural environment outside their classrooms.

Principal Vanessa Harrison welcomed the government’s investment.

Our eight new outdoor spaces give our students the opportunities for learning that they deserve,” she said.

Mr Rae said the funding had helped to provide Melton Primary School with the resources it needs.

“The teachers, staff and school community do a wonderful job – I’m proud to be part of a government that supports them to continue their amazing work,” he said.
