WORK STARTS ON LILYDALE SCHOOL UPGRADES
Wednesday 24th February 2021
Students at Lilydale Heights College and Lilydale High School are a step closer to getting the facilities they need for a great start in life, with an architect appointed to design the school’s exciting upgrade.
Member for Eastern Victoria Harriet Shing today announced that Tectura Pty Ltd has been appointed to design Lilydale Heights College’s $11.3 million upgrade, while Minx Architecture Pty Ltd has been appointed to design Lilydale High School’s $6.37 million upgrade.
The upgrade at Lilydale Heights College will see the upgrading and modernising of the school including upgrades to the science and maths building, and the technology and arts building.
The upgrade at Lilydale High School will include the building of a new library and refurbishment of relocatable buildings.
Both upgrades are being delivered as part of the Lilydale and Upper Yarra Education Plan
In the past five years, the Andrews Government has invested more than $9 billion in more than 1,600 school upgrades – creating more than 10,000 construction jobs – and is now ahead of schedule its commitment to open 100 new schools by 2026, with 48 new schools opening between 2019 and 2022.
The Andrews Government is building the Education State to ensure that every student can access a great local school and get a quality education.
