Cardross students now have bigger, better classrooms and school facilities to learn in, thanks to the Andrews Government.
Member for Northern Victoria, Mark Gepp MP announced the completion of major upgrades at Cardross Primary School – funded by the Government’s 18/19 Capital Works program.
The $800,000 project – which includes classroom refurbishment, upgrades to the fire protection system, upgrade of outdated facilities and the removal of asbestos – will deliver modern, safe and accessible spaces for students and teachers.
Local companies Energy Architecture and CPM Building Contractors were contracted to complete the works.
The Andrew’s Government has invested $7.2 billion to deliver more than 1,460 school upgrades, supporting over 7,500 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.
To ensure the health and safety of the school community and the team working on the project, work was carried out under COVID-19 advice guidelines.
