Linville proud to open facility
LINVILLE State School has welcomed the opening of their new building, constructed as part of the Building Education Revolution.
Linville State School Principal, Selina Barry, said the new resource centre was already a great asset to the school.
“The building is a library and resource centre and set up with some nice tables so the kids can take books and do their research,” she said.
“We have a nice veranda on the building which we can also use as a stage, so it's very versatile as well.
“We also had a renovation of one of the classrooms and in total cost around $300,000.
“It's wonderful for us to have the extra space for the kids to go and do their research and study outside of the classroom.”
Miss Barry said the 29 student school had two classrooms which multiple grades in classes.
“With juniors in the classrooms it's great for the older kids to have room to go to that is quiet to do their assignments, which is highly valuable,” she said.
“Even for learning support, it is great that we have an extra building to give the kids that bit extra.”
Miss Barry said the two teacher school was excited about starting to use the new building and technology.
“We also got four laptops and two digital whiteboards.”
