Traralgon families will get the world-class local school their kids deserve, with the Andrews Labor Government to delivering a massive upgrade for Kosciusko Street Primary School.

Member for Eastern Victoria Region, Harriet Shing today visited the school to tour the facilities and view the new plans for the upgrade.

The Victorian Government is investing record funding in our schools to make Victoria the Education State. They have committed to opening 100 new schools by 2026 and upgrading more than 1,400 existing ones.

Labor will invest $2.89 million to demolish Block A which contains asbestos and replace it with a brand-new permanent building.

This investment will ensure:

  • every child has access to a great education
  • our schools can cater for Victoria’s rapidly-growing population
  • our government schools are better equipped to prepare students for the 21st century.

Thousands of Victorian kids now go to school every day and learn in new classrooms with better technology and facilities, like new gyms and science labs.

The school building boom has also supported 5,000 construction jobs for Victorians right around our state.

Only Labor will keep delivering for Victorians with more new schools and upgrades to existing schools across the state.
