Students at Strathmerton 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.
Member for Northern Victoria, Mark Gepp MP today announced that Vincent Chrisp & Partners Pty Ltd has been appointed to design the school’s $3.686 million upgrade.
The project will see capital upgrades and modernisation works to the school facilities. Working with school leaders, the architecture firm will ensure this work helps the school provide students with world-class facilities and that improvements are targeted where they are needed most.
Funding for this project is made possible through the Capital Works Fund as part of Budget 2020/21 which announced that Strathmerton Primary school was one of three schools in the Shepparton district that would share in $5.92 million funding for school capital upgrades and modernisation works.
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.
