Update: The Longerenong Agricultural College campus manager John Goldsmith has welcomed the funding announcement, saying the funds will complement the college's 21st century programs.
"It's fantastic news. Staff are rapt and no double the students will be too when they return in July," he said.
"The two millions dollars will see the latest technology in the classrooms, new paint, new carpet, new furniture.
"It will complement everything we do at the data farm.
"The college's agribusiness centre hasn't been upgraded since it was first built in 1989."
Mr Goldsmith said the funds are part of a $6 million package shared between Longerenong, Glenormiston and Dookie agricultural colleges originally announced in 2018.
"We've been wanting this upgrade for several years and we have done a lot of work in the background.
"We are shovel ready - everything should be finished by March 2021."
