WORK STARTS ON SUNBURY AND MACEDON RANGES SENIOR SCHOOL UPGRADES

Students at Sunbury and Macedon Ranges Specialist School’s Senior Campus in Bullengarook are a step closer to getting the facilities they deserve, with an architect appointed to design the school’s exciting upgrade.

Member for Macedon Mary-Anne Thomas today announced that LAW Architects have been appointed to design the school’s $4.2 million upgrade.

The upgrade will see a transformation of the school’s existing facilities and includes the construction of a new multipurpose/administration building, new arts, materials, tech and automotive buildings, and associated external works.

The Andrews Labor Government has invested $5.6 billion to deliver more than 1,400 school upgrades, supporting over 5,000 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.
