WORK STARTS ON BAXTER SCHOOL UPGRADES

Students at Baxter Primary School are a step closer to getting the facilities they need for a great start in life, with an architect appointed to design the school’s exciting upgrade.

Member for Eastern Victoria, Jane Garrett today announced that Prebuilt has been appointed to design the school’s $2,581,00.00 million upgrade.

The upgrade will see a new architect-designed modular building to Baxter Primary School. The new building will feature general purpose classrooms, an open plan central area, student toilets and accessible toilet facilities.

The Andrews Labor Government has invested $6.1 billion to deliver more than 1,400 school upgrades, supporting over 7,500 construction jobs for Victorians.

Under the Labor Government’s school building boom, a total of 100 new schools will open by 2026, ensuring every child has a great local school and a great start in life.

This building boom will continue over the coming years, with the Government having appointed builders to start delivering 11 schools across the state that will open in 2020 and 14 schools that will open in 2021.

The Labor Government is building the Education State to ensure that every student can access a great local school and get a quality education.
