WORK STARTS ON CLIFTON CREEK SCHOOL REBUILD

Students at Clifton Creek 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 rebuild.

Member for Eastern Victoria today announced that AOA Christopher Peck – Consultant has been appointed to design the school’s $4,250,000 million project.

The project will rebuild permanent facilities at Clifton Creek Primary School following the devastating bushfires that destroyed the school. This will also include a kitchen and sensory gardens, shade sails and additional space for community uses such as adult education and fetes. The new school building will be ready for use by Term 3, 2021.

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

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