Students at Merrivale Primary School are a step closer to getting the facilities they need for a great start in life, with an architect appointed to design the school’s exciting upgrade.
Labor Member for Western Victoria, Gayle Tierney today announced that De Atielier has been appointed to design the school’s $5.385 million upgrade, funded in the 2020-21 State Budget.
The upgrade will see the modernisation of the school, working with school leaders to ensure this work helps achieve their educational goals, and that improvements are targeted where they are needed most.
In the past five years, the Labor Government has invested more than $9 billion in more than 1,600 school upgrades – creating more than 10,000 construction jobs – and is now ahead of schedule its commitment to open 100 new schools by 2026, with 48 new schools opening between 2019 and 2022.
The Labor Government is building the Education State to ensure that every student can access a great local school and get a quality education.
