South Yarra students now have bigger, better classrooms and school facilities to learn in, thanks to the Andrews Labor Government.
Member for Southern Metropolitan Region today visited South Yarra Primary School to open its $6 million upgrade, which includes a new triple-story permanent modular building. This will include 12 general purpose classrooms to increase the school capacity by 200 students.
The Labor Government has invested $5.6 billion to deliver more than 1,400 school upgrades, supporting over 5,000 construction jobs for Victorians.
A total of 100 new schools will open by 2026 under the Labor Government’s school building boom, ensuring every child has a great local school and a great start in life.
This building boom will continue over the coming years, with the Government having already appointed builders to start delivering 11 schools across the state that will open in 2020 and 14 schools that will open in 2021.
The Labor Government is building the Education State so that every student can access a great local school and a quality education.
“We’re ensuring local students have the best facilities, our classrooms have the
best teachers and every child is given every chance to succeed.”
— Member for South Metropolitan Nina Taylor
