Minister for Education James Merlino and Member for Buninyong Michaela Settle have announced that Linton Primary School will receive $1.978 million to upgrade and modernise the school.
This investment builds on the $1.18 billion as part of the Building Works Package announced earlier this year, which is creating space for more than 21,000 extra students in Victoria’s education system and creating around 1,600 local construction jobs.
Across Victoria, the Labor Government is delivering 1,460 school upgrades – investing in new classrooms, fixing old buildings and delivering the learning spaces our kids deserve.
The Labor Government’s unprecedented $7.2 billion investment in Victorian school infrastructure is not only creating 7,500 jobs – it is ensuring that ensuring every child has a great local school where they can achieve their best.
Member for Buninyong Michaela Settle credited the families in Linton for carrying out a phenomenal job in supporting students to learn from home.
“As kids return to their classrooms, we want to make Linton Primary School better than before,” she said.
“This is a great opportunity for Linton Primary. The school will now work through the best way to invest these funds to upgrade and modernise their school.
“This shows that the Victorian Government understands the importance of regional and rural schools and that every school kid counts in these communities.”
