Symes turns first sod for Avenel Preschool Upgrade

Thursday, 4 April, 2019

Strathbogie Shire Council joined Member for Northern Victoria the Hon. Jaclyn Symes MP to turn the first sod at the Avenel Preschool recently, to mark the commencement of a $526,000 upgrade and extension to the facilities.

The upgrade will involve significant extensions to the buildings, reconfiguration of the entrance, a new reception area, a consultation room and a meeting room.

It will also include the provision of a second playroom, all abilities toilets, new kitchen and a larger storeroom.

A dedicated Maternal and Child Health room will also be included in the upgrade, which will allow for a Maternal and Child Health nurse to be stationed at the new facility on a part-time basis.

Extensions will facilitate a greater capacity for kindergarten students, from 28 to approximately 60 places and will see the integration of an early childhood learning centre, fun groups, supported play groups, as well as after school and, in future, long day care provision.
