In response to today's announcement by Minister for Education Ben Carroll regarding the funding boost for inclusive facilities in Victorian schools, the Victorian Student Representative Council (VicSRC) strongly supports the Allan Labor Government's commitment to creating an inclusive educational environment for all students.

The Inclusive Schools Fund (ISF) has proven to be a transformative program, with around 420 projects funded since its establishment in 2015. VicSRC recognises the importance of these initiatives in fostering inclusive learning spaces and accessible playgrounds, allowing all students to fully participate, develop, and succeed in Victorian government schools.

ased on the advice of Victorian students, VicSRC is strongly committed to achieving a safe, inclusive and accessible education system for every student. Today's announcement marks positive progress towards achieving this essential goal.

As a student-led organisation, VicSRC values the ongoing efforts to ensure that every student in Victoria can reach their full potential through access to quality education. We appreciate the government's investment in the Disability Inclusion program and the broader initiatives supporting students with disability.

VicSRC looks forward to continued collaboration with the Victorian Government and Minister Carroll to amplify student voices and contribute to the ongoing improvement of the education system in Victoria.
