On Monday morning I had the pleasure of attending the site of the new Bannockburn P–12 school for the turning of the first sod. I want to thank all those who attended — students, teachers, parents and school councillors — for braving the weather to come out to help turn the sod. Construction is due to be completed by December 2017, and the school is scheduled to open for term 1 in 2018. The school will include state-of-the-art facilities, including a two-court gymnasium, a performing arts theatre, six outdoor hard courts and a multipurpose space used by the school during the day and by the YMCA after school hours for community programs and after-school care. This is another example of the Andrews Labor government continuing its plan to make Victoria the education state.
