PRINCES HILL PRIMARY SCHOOL UPGRADE A STEP CLOSER

Students at Princes Hill Primary School are a step closer to the facilities they deserve, with Ewert Leaf appointed to design maintenance for upgrades to the school.

Jenny Mikakos, Member for Northern Metropolitan Region, today announced $54,750 funding for works to maintain the structure of the old heritage building, including classrooms and the veranda.

The Andrews Labor Government is building 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 project is part of a $2.5 billion investment by the Government in the past three Budgets to improve classrooms, upgrade facilities and build new schools across the state.

This school building boom has delivered more than 1,000 school upgrades and 56 new school projects across the state, supporting almost 5000 construction jobs for Victorians.
