Member for Bendigo West Maree Edwards MP visited Winters Flat Primary School on Thursday 13 May 2021 to open its $2.916 million upgrade, which included replacing older buildings containing asbestos with new architecturally-designed permanent modular buildings. The new buildings feature a multipurpose hall and an art room along with external learning spaces.
Today, we’re not just celebrating the opening of a new building, we are also celebrating what will be achieved inside for many years to come.
“A big thank you to the Winters Flat Primary School Principal, teachers and staff as well as the school community who have advocated and worked with me to deliver this fabulous outcome for the school,” said Ms Edwards.
The Labor Government has invested more than $9 billion to deliver more than 1,600 school upgrades, supporting over 10,000 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.
Local families can now enjoy great new facilities at Winters Flat Primary School.
