We significantly upgraded and modernised Aldercourt Primary School.

It included building:

  • innovative, flexible spaces that support modern teaching practices and allow the school to offer integrated family, health and wellbeing services

The model offers families a range of services from one location, including:

  • funded kindergarten for three and four-year-olds

  • maternal and child health services
  • health and wellbeing support
  • training and job-seeking services.
