UPGRADING GISBORNE PRIMARY BRICK BY BRICK

Students in Gisborne will soon have access to the first-rate classrooms and facilities they deserve, with work under way upgrading Gisborne Primary School.

Member for Macedon, Mary-Anne Thomas, today turned the first sod to start construction on Gisborne Primary School’s $1.682 million upgrade, which will help it deliver a 21st century education.

Raysett Constructions have been appointed to build the upgrade, which will construct three new classrooms.

Stage 1 of Gisborne Primary School’s upgrade will create local jobs, with work expected to be completed in mid-2019.

These works mark the start of an ambitious $11.628 million transformation of Gisborne Primary School that will provide students with first-rate learning facilities for many years to come.

Maddison Architects have been appointed to help deliver the $10 million stage 2 of the project, which will include works to demolish the current, under-sized school gym, replacing it with extra classrooms and a brand-new competition grade gymnasium.

The Andrews Labor Government has invested over $53 million in Macedon schools since 2014.

Across Victoria, the Labor Government is investing $3.8 billion to deliver more than 1,300 school upgrades, supporting almost 5,000 construction jobs for Victorians.

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