Mr WALSH (Murray Plains) – (Question 6754) My constituency question is to the Minister for Education on behalf of the school communities of Echuca South Echuca West and the Echuca Specialist School. These three schools are going to be co-located on a new greenfield site and previously met with the minister to brief him when their masterplan was finalised. Following positive feedback from the minister the schools have been working on the next step with the architects which is the schematic design. This has now been signed off by the department and the schools. There is a desperate need for this new school particularly by the Echuca Specialist School and on behalf of these three schools I seek feedback from the minster as to opportunities for this to be funded in the May budget.
