Mortlake P-12 College students now have bigger, better classrooms and school facilities to learn in, thanks to the Andrews Labor Government.
Labor Member for Western Victoria, Gayle Tierney today visited Mortlake P-12 College to officially open its $2.1 million upgrade.
Ms Tierney said Mortlake P-12 College students and teachers have access to state-of-the-art facilities, with a new architect-designed modular building. The new building features general purpose classrooms, student toilets, accessible toilet, breezeway and a linking deck to an existing building.
The Labor Government has invested more than $9 billion to deliver more than 1,600 school upgrades, supporting over 10,000 construction jobs for Victorians.
A total of 100 new schools will open by 2026 under the Labor Government’s school building boom, 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 already appointed builders to start delivering 14 new schools that will open in 2021.
The Labor Government is building the Education State so that every student can access a great local school and a quality education.
