Thanks to the Andrews Labor Government, Lancefield students now have better access to modern learning facilities.
Member for Macedon Mary-Anne Thomas today visited Lancefield Primary School to open its $288,900 upgrade, which saw the conversion of the school’s library into a discovery learning centre.
The new discovery learning centre, named the Wil-im-ee Moo-ring Centre, will have a science focus, drawing on the area’s unique natural history, including megafauna.
The Labor Government is working to strengthen community pride in schools and build the Education State so that every Victorian student gets the opportunity for a great education and every community has access to a great school.
The Government has invested $5.6 billion to deliver more than 1,400 school upgrades, supporting over 5,000 construction jobs for Victorians.
A total of 100 new schools will open by 2026 under the Labor Government’s school building boom, 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 already 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 so that every student can access a great local school and a quality education.
