Students at Ceres Primary School are a step close to the facilities they deserve, with architect firm, James Deans & Associates Architects appointed to design the $653,000 upgrade of the school.
Member for Western Victoria, Gayle Tierney MP said the upgrade, announced in the 2017-18 Victorian Budget in May, would go towards an upgrade and modernisation of facilities at Ceres Primary School.
The $653,000 upgrade includes refurbishment of classrooms and facilities that are in poor condition. These works will target the facilities that need it most, ensuring that students learn in facilities that are commensurate with the delivery of modern education.
“New and modern school buildings contribute to school pride for students, parents and the wider community”, Ms Tierney said.
The Andrews Labor Government is building the Education State so that every Victorian student gets the opportunity for a great education and every community has access to a great school.
The project is part of a $2.5 billion investment by the Government in the past three Budgets to improve classrooms, upgrade facilities and build new schools across the state.
This school building boom has delivered more than 1,000 school upgrades and 56 new school projects across the state, supporting almost 5000 construction jobs for Victorians.
