Kilberry Valley Primary School is set to provide further support to students with special needs thanks to a $200,000 grant from the Andrews Labor Government.

The grant from the first round of the Inclusive Schools Fund will enable Kilberry Valley Primary School to create Re-engagement spaces for students with disabilities.

The Re-engagement spaces will include withdrawal spaces, a multi-sensory room, outdoor learning spaces and be shared for out of school care.

This unique facility will ensure that students with disabilities have access to the support they need to fully participate in school and re-engage in their learning.
