Barwon Heads students now have bigger, better classrooms and school facilities, thanks to the Andrews Labor Government.
Member for Bellarine Lisa Neville today visited Barwon Heads Primary School to open its $3.4 million upgrade, which includes a new learning studio with acoustic sliding doors to create flexible learning spaces, new and refurbished classrooms, an upgraded library and landscaping works.
“It was great to visit Barwon Heads Primary School today and see for myself these fantastic new facilities, which the entire community can be proud of.” Ms Neville said.
Multiple buildings have been refurbished and external landscaping has included a new lawn play space, a garden for use in art and cooking and softball courts.
There are 481 students enrolled at Barwon Heads Primary School this year, with the school serving the local community for more than 125 years.
Ms Neville said, “We are delivering on our promise and turning Barwon Heads Primary School’s vision into a reality; local families will benefit from these great new school facilities for years to come.”
The Labor Government is building the Education State so that every student can access a great local school and receive a great education, and has invested $2.5 billion in the past three Budgets to improve classrooms, upgrade facilities and build new schools across the state.
This school building boom has delivered more than 1,000 school upgrades and 56 new school projects across the state, supporting almost 5,000 construction jobs for Victorians.
