Trafalgar students now have bigger, better school facilities to learn in, thanks to the Andrews Labor Government.

Member for Eastern Victoria Harriet Shing MP today visited Trafalgar High School to open its $2.5 million upgrade, which includes a new competition grade gym.

The Labor Government has invested $5.6 billion to deliver more than 1,400 school upgrades, supporting over 5,000 construction jobs for Victorians.

A total of 100 new schools will open by 2026 under the Labor Government’s school building boom, ensuring every child has a great local school and a great start in life.

This building boom will continue over the coming years, with the Government having already appointed builders to start delivering 11 schools across the state that will open in 2020 and 14 schools that will open in 2021.

The Labor Government is building the Education State so that every student can access a great local school and a quality education.

Quotes attributable to Member for Eastern Victoria Harriet Shing MP

“The 760 students who attend Trafalgar High have needed safe, weather-proof and fit-for-purpose gym facilities for a long time – it was an absolute privilege to work alongside the school community and local basketball legends like Frank Gridley to secure the funding and watch this project come to life.”

“Local families are already enjoying the modern, bright and flexible space and it will enable more people to get active and reach their best potential in so many different ways.”
