Students at Grovedale College will enjoy more modern buildings, as the Andrews Labor
Government continues to make Victoria the Education State.
The Member for Western Victoria Gayle Tierney MP today announced $7 million from the 2016/17 Victorian Budget will go towards an upgrade to the school’s ageing facilities, ensuring students have the modern spaces they need to learn.
The funding will go towards modernisation and upgrade works for school buildings.
It’s the latest step in making Victoria the Education State, where every student gets
the chance to fulfil his or her potential and can access a school with great facilities.
Building, fixing, upgrading, and modernising Victoria’s schools gives our students and
teachers the learning environment they need to achieve their best.
Throughout the state, hundreds of new school infrastructure projects are underway, just like the one about to start at Grovedale College.
