Cobram students now have bigger, better classrooms and school facilities to learn in – Andrews Labor Government’s innovative school building program.
Member for Northern Victoria, Mark Gepp MP today announced the completion of Cobram Secondary College’s $3.39 million upgrade which delivers a new architect-designed modular building for staff and students.
The new building will feature one general purpose classroom, food-tech, dining and canteen facilities – plus staff, student and accessible toilet facilities.
The Labor Government has invested $6.1 billion to deliver more than 1,400 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 11 schools across the state that will open in 2020 and 14 schools that will open in 2021.
The Andrews Government is building the Education State so that every student can access a great local school and a quality education.
