Wonthaggi Primary School will soon have important new works undertaken, thanks to the Andrews Labor Government.

Member for Eastern Victoria Harriet Shing today announced the upgrade, with $62,100 for costs associated with the refurbishment of the swimming pool at Wonthaggi Primary School.

The Labor Government is working to strengthen community pride in schools and build the Education State so that every Victorian student gets the opportunity for a great education and every community has access to a great school.

The project is part of a $3.8 billion investment by the Government to improve classrooms, upgrade facilities and build new schools.

The school building boom has delivered more than 1,300 school upgrades and 70 new school projects across the state, supporting more than 5,000 construction jobs for Victorians.
