Wonthaggi Secondary College will be able to get on and plan a more exciting future, thanks to funding from the Andrews Labor Government.

Harriet Shing MP, Member for Eastern Victoria Region today announced that the senior campus of Wonthaggi Secondary College will relocate to the McKenzie Street site, and planning works for the new site will begin.

Detailed planning work is the first step towards future upgrades at Wonthaggi Secondary College.

By funding more planning, more upgrades and building more schools, the Labor Government is making Victoria the Education State.

The 2016/17 Victorian Budget includes $12 million for school planning across our state, with Wonthaggi Secondary College one of 34 schools to receive funding.

“Wonthaggi Secondary College is a great school with a huge catchment area – it’s continuing to grow and its teachers and staff do a power of work to bring the best out of every student. I know it’s planning an even more exciting future.”

“Education Minister James Merlino and I have been working hard with Principal Gary Dennis and the School Council to make sure that the work can get underway at long last to deliver better facilities and learning environments to Wonthaggi.”

“I’m really looking forward to seeing the planning stage completed, and to working with parents and families so that Wonthaggi Secondary College gets the support it needs to go from strength to strength.”
