Carnegie Primary School students are a step closer to having the first-rate classrooms and facilities they deserve, thanks to the Victorian Government.
Victorian Minister for Education James Merlino and Member for Oakleigh Steve Dimopoulos visited Carnegie Primary School to view the final designs for the school’s $5.5 million upgrade.
The project will provide students with a new games hall building, which will act as a centralised hub for sports, music, drama and art including a competition-size stadium as well as a new canteen.
The school’s classrooms, outdoors landscaping and administration areas will also be significantly upgraded.
The Victorian Government invested $4 million in 2016’s Budget and $1.5 million in 2017’s Budget to enable the transformation of Carnegie Primary School to take place.
A tender for a builder is now open, with construction expected to start later in 2017.
The project is part of the Government’s $2.5 billion Education State investment 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.
