Students at Mooroolbark East Primary School will enjoy more modern buildings, as the Andrews Labor Government continues to make Victoria the Education State.

The Member for Monbulk James Merlino MP today announced $2.4 million from the 2016/17 Victorian Budget will go towards an upgrade to the school’s aging facilities, ensuring students have the modern spaces they need to learn.

The funding will go towards the next stage of the modernisation including the gymnasium and classroom facilities, to complete the vision of the school.

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 one about to start at Mooroolbark East Primary School.
