New era for historic school

Grey skies and rain didn’t deter the Winters Flat Primary School community from turning out in force to celebrate the official opening of their new school buildings last Thursday evening, May 13.
Bendigo West MP Maree Edwards was on hand to officially open the $2.916 million upgrade which saw the school’s older buildings containing asbestos replaced with new architecturally-designed permanent modular buildings built by Modscape, including a new multipurpose hall and an art room along with external learning spaces.
