Yinnar Primary School and stadium gets $7.3M for upgrades and modernisation from Victorian 2022/23 budget
The Andrews Labor government is making sure students at Yinnar Primary School have better learning environments, with a huge investment to deliver a major upgrade for the growing school.
Member for Eastern Victoria Harriet Shing today announced the Victorian Budget 2022/23 invests $7.3 million to deliver upgrades and modernise existing facilities at the school including Block A and the Stadium at Yinnar Primary School. Major upgrades will be delivered at 29 mainstream schools - with funding provided to expand capacity to meet enrolment growth at an additional two established schools - making sure every Victorian family has access to the best learning facilities, close to home.
Upgrades will deliver more space for schools in growing communities, improved learning spaces and sports facilities giving students better educational outcomes
Major upgrades investment
Students with special needs should receive the same opportunities as every other student in our state. Alongside upgrading mainstream schools this Budget will upgrade 36 special schools. That means since the Labor government was elected, every single special school in Victoria will have received funding for a major upgrade.
In the past eight years, the Labor government has invested $12.8 billion in building new schools and more than 1,850 school upgrades, creating around 17,400 jobs in construction and associated industries. The government is well ahead of schedule in its work to deliver 100 new schools between 2019 and 2026, with 75 new schools opening between 2019 and 2024.
Improving facilities for students
Member for Eastern Victoria Harriet Shing said, "These upgrades to Yinnar Primary school will ensure that our younger students have the best educational experience as they continue through their educational journey.
"You can't get a first-rate education in a second-rate classroom - this investment will go a long way towards improving the facilities for students at Yinnar Primary School and making their educational journey a modern and engaging one. We're supporting every Victorian child to reach their full potential - whether they live in the city or across regional Victoria." Ms Shing said.
Minister for Education James Merlino said, "We're making sure every Victorian student has access to the best facilities at school, no matter where they live."
