The Andrews Labor Government is making sure students in Moriac have the new state-of-the-art classrooms and facilities they deserve.
Member for Western Victoria, Gayle Tierney today visited Moriac Primary School to announce it would get a $500,000 funding boost to make sure stages 2 and 3 of its exciting upgrade are delivered on-time and in-full.
The funding will guarantee local students will soon have modern new classrooms and facilities to learn in, and staff will have the admin facilities they need to give great lessons and support.
It comes on top of $3.15 million provided by the Labor Government to upgrade Moriac Primary School, including construction of two new learning blocks with seven classrooms, new multi-purpose learning spaces, and a renovation of admin and support areas.
Stage 1 of the upgrade has already been completed, including a new junior school block with three classrooms and multi-purpose space.
Work is now underway on stages 2 and 3 of the upgrade, including construction of a new middle school block with four classrooms, a new multi-purpose space and upgrades to the school admin and support facilities.
The upgrade to admin spaces will include new staff offices, a counselling room, a disabled toilet and first aid facilities.
James Deans & Associates Architects designed the upgrade, with Lyons Construction building it.
The Labor Government is building the Education State so every Victorian student gets the opportunity for a great education and every community has access to a great school.
There are now 64 new government schools in the construction pipeline following a more than $2.8 billion investment by the Victorian Government in new schools and school upgrades around the state.
The school building boom will create more than 5000 construction jobs and ensure all Victorian families have access to a great school no matter where they live.
