Students at Emerald Secondary College 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 Harriet Shing today announced that Craig Tan Architects has been appointed to design the school’s $5.576 million upgrade.

The school will be upgraded and modernised to ensure that students will have the best chance to succeed.

In the past five years, the Labor 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 Labor Government is building the Education State to ensure that every student can access a great local school and get a quality education.
