Nationals Member for Lismore, Thomas George, will today officially open the $7.6 million new joint funded facilities at Kyogle High School.

Mr George said the new facilities were funded by both the NSW and Australian Governments and provide new facilities for vocational education and training.

“This $7.6 million project included the construction of a new Block P, which consists of the new Materials Learning Units, as well as the Trade Training Centre for hospitality ”, Mr George said.

“The new Block O was also constructed, which is the new canteen and toilet block.

“Also included in these works was the construction of a new central courtyard area and new padmounted substation, as well as an extension of an existing car park and new entrance.”

“Kyogle High School has a reputation for delivering quality educational outcomes and these new facilities will help deliver modern vocational education and training.

“The new Block P contains state of the art equipment for students to learn with.

“The new Trade Training Centre was completed in January 2013, with the canteen and toilet block completed in May 2013. The other works were finished in August 2013.

“Vocational education and training has been growing at Kyogle High School, with more students enrolling every year.

“These fantastic new facilities will encourage more students to consider undertaking a trade in high school.”

The Trade Training Centres in Schools Program is an Australian Government initiative that enables eligible secondary schools to seek funding for infrastructure to offer a broad range of vocational education and training options to students from years 9 to 12.
