Students at Bendigo Special Development School and Specimen Hill Primary School are a step closer to getting the facilities they need for a great start in life, with architects appointed to design both schools exciting upgrades.

The upgrades will see Bendigo Special Development School receive $171,000 and Specimen Hill Primary School receive $200,000 both from the Inclusive Schools Fund.

The Andrews Labor Government has invested $5.6 billion to deliver more than 1,400 school upgrades, supporting over 5,000 construction jobs for Victorians.

Under the Labor Government’s school building boom, a total of 100 new schools will open by 2026, 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 appointed builders to start delivering 11 schools across the state that will open in 2020 and 14 schools that will open in 2021.

The Labor Government is building the Education State to ensure that every student can access a great local school and get a quality education.

 “We’re making sure that our schools have the best facilities, our classrooms have the best teachers and that every child is given every chance to succeed.”

“Central Victorian families are a step closer to getting the great local school facilities their kids need to thrive.”
