Teesdale State of the Art Facility Officially Opened

The Teesdale Children’s Centre was officially opened by Geoff Howard MP, Member for Buninyong, on Monday 25 July.

The newly renovated and extended centre provides necessary kindergarten and occasional care facilities, a consulting space for the Maternal and Child Health Service, community playgroups and community meeting space.

This project was jointly funded by the State Government of Victoria ($240,000), Teesdale kindergarten committee ($80,000) and Golden Plains Shire Council ($112,000 plus in-kind project management).

Mayor, Cr Des Phelan, thanked the State Government for the funding and congratulated the Teesdale community for raising such a substantial sum.

“I would like to especially acknowledge the Teesdale Kindergarten Committee for its massive $80,000 contribution to the project – this is a fantastic effort from the Committee and a great community effort.”

“The Bannockburn Community Enterprise (through the Bendigo Bank) contributed $5,000 for a storage shed and I’d like to thank them as well.”

“This great team approach and hard work has resulted in the establishment of a best-practice children’s centre that will serve as a ‘one stop shop’ for the community.”

“The Teesdale Children’s Centre is a wonderful space, providing room for the community to grow, connect and continue to foster great community spirit.”
