Students at Baringa Special 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 today announced that Haskell Architects have been appointed to design the school’s $13.7 million upgrade.

The upgrade will see the construction of additional permanent buildings at the school.

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.
