“We’re making sure that our local schools have the best facilities. This is a great step towards delivering the state-of-the-art facilities that staff and students at this much-loved school deserve and that match the quality of teaching and learning," Ms Tierney said.
“Beeac families are a step closer to getting the great local school facilities their kids need to thrive and succeed.”
In the past seven years, the Victorian Government has invested more than $10.9 billion in building new schools and more than 1,700 school upgrades, creating around 13,500 jobs in construction and associated industries. It is now ahead of schedule in its commitment to open 100 new schools by 2026, with 62 new schools opening between 2019 and 2024.
While much of this funding went on new schools and significant upgrades to help meet increasing demand, the Minor Capital Works fund is about delivering the small projects that make a big difference while also supporting local jobs.
Projects through the Minor Capital Works Fund will be progressively delivered with all projects to be completed by the end of 2022.
