ACT Minister for Education and Training Joy Burch today announced the 2013-14 Budget will allocate $1.8 million for an Introductory English Centre (IEC) at Wanniassa Hills Primary School.
The IEC supports students newly arrived in the ACT with a language and cultural background other than English and who have limited English language.
