Building The Education State In Bacchus Marsh
Students in Bacchus Marsh are a step closer to having the facilities they deserve thanks to the Andrews Labor Government’s investment in local schools.
Minister for Education James Merlino and Member for Melton Don Nardella today visited Bacchus Marsh College to meet staff and students, and discuss plans to upgrade the school.
The Labor Government invested a record $1.1 billion to build new schools and upgrade classrooms across the state in the Victorian Budget 2016/17, including $200 million to better maintain existing school facilities.
Bacchus Marsh College received $3 million to modernise and upgrade its ageing facilities.
This follows on from the Labor Government’s $5 million investment to build a new Year 9 centre at the school, which is currently being designed by Y2Architecture.
The Labor Government is building the Education State so that every local student gets the opportunity for a great education and every community has access to a great school.
