asbestos trainingEducation Minister Martin Dixon has vowed to keep the western Victoria open despite the recent asbestos scare.

The Timboon Prep to 12 School was cleared out of all personnel and students ] when following WorkSafe’s closure notice after discovering asbestos and peeling lead paint.

Fortunately, tests revealed that students and teachers were not exposed to airborne asbestos.

Despite reports earlier this year that the school would be permanently closed, Dixon promised that will not happen.

“The school’s definitely not going to close,” he said.

“It’s a great school. It’s a great community and when you look at where the school is situated within the broader community, it’s a vital hub and I can assure the community that the future of the school is very very bright.”

The closure order has since been lifted and classes have resumed normally. The asbestos and paint will be dealt with over the holidays.

Principal Rosalie Moorfield says the school community has been very supportive during the closure.

“This has probably been a pretty low week for the Timboon community,” she said.

“But at the end of that, strong bonds have been formed and a real passion to make sure that our facilities are the facilities that we deserve, has certainly been ignited.”
