Students at Morwell Park Primary School will enjoy more modern buildings, as the Andrews Labor Government continues to make Victoria the Education State.

Harriet Shing MP, Member for Eastern Victoria Region today announced $7.8 million from the 2016/17 Victorian Budget will go towards an upgrade to the school’s ageing facilities, ensuring students have the modern spaces they need to learn.

The funding will go towards modernisation and upgrade works for school buildings.

It’s the latest step in making Victoria the Education State, where every student gets the chance to fulfil their potential and can access a school with great facilities.

Building, fixing, upgrading, and modernising Victoria’s schools give our students and teachers the learning environment they need to achieve their best.

Throughout the state, hundreds of new school infrastructure projects are underway, just like the one about to start at Morwell Park Primary School.
