Students at Ocean Grove Primary School and Bellarine Secondary College will enjoy more modern buildings, as the Andrews Labor Government continues to make Victoria the Education State.

The Member for Bellarine Lisa Neville MP today announced that $4 million will go to Ocean Grove Primary and $1.2 million to Bellarine Secondary from the 2016/17 Victorian Budget towards upgrades to both school’s ageing facilities, ensuring each school’s students have the modern spaces they need to learn.

For Bellarine Secondary College this is in addition to the $1.1 million dollars announced in last years’ budget for-filing our 2014 election commitment.

The funding will go towards modernisation and upgrade works for school buildings.

It’s the latest step in making Victoria the Education State, where every student gets the chance to fulfil their potential and can access a school with great facilities.

Building, fixing, upgrading, and modernising Victoria’s schools gives our students and teachers the learning environment they need to achieve their best.

Throughout the state, hundreds of new school infrastructure projects are underway, just like the ones about to start here on the Bellarine.
