Wednesday, 16 January 2019
Students at Fish Creek and District Primary School and Foster Primary School and 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 Region, Harriet Shing, today announced that ATCO has been appointed to design both the school’s $785,000 and $1,733,000 upgrades.
The upgrade will see the following improvements:
- Fish Creek and District Primary School – We are delivering a new architect-designed modular building to Fish Creek and District Primary School to replace the Main Building.
- Foster Primary School – We are delivering new architect-designed modular facilities to Foster Primary School to replace Block C and Block D (Multipurpose).
The Andrews Labor Government has invested $3.8 billion to deliver more than 1,300 school upgrades, supporting almost 5,000 construction jobs for Victorians.
Under the Labor Government’s school building boom, a total of 100 new schools will open over the next eight years, 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 appointed builders to start delivering 11 schools across the state that will open in 2020.
The Labor Government is building the Education State to ensure that every student can access a great local school and get a quality education.
