Coalition Government investing $2.1 million into the Melbourne Indigenous Transition School
Out and About
Date Posted : 16 March 2019
On 16 March, I was proud to announce the Coalition Government will invest $2.1 million into the Melbourne Indigenous Transition School (MITS), to construct a new Alumni Boarding House to support the wonderful work MITS does with remote and regional Indigenous boarding students.
This new investment will build on the success of the current MITS program and its students. Twenty-two Year 7 students from Indigenous communities attend school and board at MITS every year, before transitioning into Year 8 at one of eleven Melbourne partner schools.
The new Alumni Boarding House will provide 18 beds for MITS alumni girls, creating a culturally strong home-base for students post-MITS while they attend their new schools.
