Students at Lancefield 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 Macedon, Mary-Anne Thomas, today announced that Y2 Architecture has been appointed to design the school’s $288,900 upgrade.

The upgrade will enhance the existing library to incorporate a discovery learning centre.

The Discovery Centre will support the school’s science program and their highly successful Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden program as well as supporting students’ interest in Lancefield’s rich Wurundjeri heritage and its unique megafauna.

The Andrews Labor Government has invested $3.8 billion to deliver more than 1,300 school upgrades, supporting almost 5,000 construction jobs for Victorians.

Under the Labor Government’s school building boom, a total of 100 new schools will open over the next eight years, 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.

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