Upgrading Glen Eira College Brick by Brick

Caulfield East students will learn in first-rate classrooms, as the Andrews Labor Government continues to roll out the next phase of our school building boom.
Member for Southern Metropolitan Nina Taylor today announced Glen Eira College will receive at least $6.577 million for an upgrade, as part of the Victorian Budget 2021/22.

The funding will upgrade and modernise the school, including adding facilities for an additional 250 spaces to meet growing demand
The Budget invests $1.6 billion to build new schools and improve existing schools – making sure our kids have the bright futures they deserve.
Not only will this investment ensure great local schools, it will also create more than 3,500 new jobs in construction and associated industries, including more than 2,900 jobs in metropolitan Melbourne and around 615 jobs in regional Victoria.

In the past seven years, the Labor Government has invested more than $10.9 billion in building new schools, more than 1,700 school upgrades – creating around 13,500 jobs in construction and associated industries.
The Labor Government is building the Education State so that every Victorian gets the opportunity for a great education and every community has access to a great school.

“This is a great local school and this project delivers the classrooms our students need to thrive. We know this school is growing and that is why we need to build the facilities to meet that demand.”
“Every single student deserves access to a great local school and that is exactly what the Andrews Labor Government is delivering.”
