A $2.3 million state government grant is set to deliver a new sport and gymnasium facility at Trafalgar High School that also will serve the wider community.
Premier Daniel Andrews announced the long awaited funds during a visit to Gippsland on Thursday.
Trafalgar High School assistant principal John Freyne said the money would provide a much needed new facility not only for the school but the whole Trafalgar community.
Mr Freyne said the government had made a “genuine commitment to the social infrastructure” of Trafalgar.
“It’s the only indoor sports facility in the town…it’s a great result for the school and the town,” he said.
The secondary school gymnasium (ECA centre) was unusable for about four months this year because of structural issues.
Mr Freyne said repairs to the building enabled it to be reinstated.
But, he said, the $2.3 million announcement would now allow the school to deliver a better facility for the whole community.
