Students at Traralgon College and Latrobe Special Developmental 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 ClarkeHopkinsClarke has been appointed to design the school’s $13.376 million upgrade.

The upgrade will see the building of new administration, science and middle years learning buildings.

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.

Quotes attributable to Member for Eastern Victoria Harriet Shing

“It’s been such a privilege to work with the two schools for a number of years in developing this project, and securing the funding required to enable both schools to flourish into the future.” 

“The teachers, staff, school councils and families at both schools have been instrumental in shaping the priorities for the architect’s brief, and I can’t wait to see the new plans come to life as we move towards construction.”
