Planning for Moriac Primary School is on track with the appointment of James Deans & Associates Architects to design the $3.1 million upgrade of its existing facilities.
This will be combined with the Planned Maintenance work for which the school received $156,000 in 2015.
Member for Western Victoria, Gayle Tierney, made the announcement and celebrate the bright future ahead for students and teachers.
The design will include the rebuilding of classrooms, administration and staff facilities.
The Andrews Labor Government’s first Education State Budget is taking our education system from good to great by designing and building the right infrastructure to support our kids to thrive – because good infrastructure makes for great places to learn.
The 2015-16 Victorian Budget invests almost $4 billion in Victoria’s education and skills system – representing the single biggest boost to education funding in Victoria’s history.
The Budget provided $325 million to renovate, refurbish or rebuild 67 schools – 25 of them in our fast-growing outer suburbs and 21 in regional Victoria.
It also includes $180 million for programs that will help families cover the extra costs of education, like camps, excursions and uniforms, so no child misses out.
