School opens new facilities

HUNTLY Primary School showcased two of its newest facilities to the community at an open day last week. 

The school opened a new outdoor learning centre - a project funded through a grant from the Victorian Education Excellence Awards. 

The new centre features a large seat covered by a shade cloth and will be used as an outdoor learning space.

Education support and sustainability teacher Felicity Nicholls said the learning centre was only the first stage of a three stage project. 

She said the second stage would include building a barbecue which adjoined the outdoor learning centre, while stage three was installing a dry creek bed. 

"The dry creek bed will be used as a place for sensory learning," she said. 

"It will be wonderful once it is finished.

"It will add a nice dynamic to the school."

The school also opened its newly-named Greg Bowen community room last week.

It will be used as an after school care room and place for community groups to meet.
