Students at Baringhup Primary School and Newstead Primary School will benefit from a new upgrade, thanks to the Andrews Labor Government.

The $214,000 investment (Newstead PS $151,000; Baringhup PS $63,000), delivered as part of the Victorian Budget 2017/18, will go towards making sure local kids get the best start in life.

This project will upgrade and modernise facilities at both school, including the much-needed refurbishment of classrooms and facilities. 

The Labor Government is building and upgrading a record number of schools to make sure every child has every chance to succeed.

“We’re making sure every community has great schools, every classroom has great teachers and every child gets the best start in life. These two schools are already a great school. This investment will make it even better.”

“Making sure our kids get a great education is the single most important thing we can do.”
