LOCAL SCHOOLS SHARE IN MAINTENANCE FUNDS

Three schools in Hobsons Bay have shared in almost $500,000 from the Andrews Government to repair school buildings and facilities.

The additional funds mean Williamstown High School, Altona North Primary School and Kingsville Primary School won’t have to sacrifice funding from their school budget to complete the urgent repairs.

Repair works include:

  • Kingsville Primary School – $103,000 to repair school roof, re-laying concrete entry paving, repairing asphalt areas, and renew the asphalt playground;
  • Williamstown High School – $196,000 to complete vital maintenance works on the administration building at the Pasco Street Campus;
  • Altona North Primary School – $198,000 to replace and upgrade cracked and damaged cladding on the school’s two main buildings.

These investments represent essential works funding and highlight the Andrews Labor Government’s commitment to education throughout Victoria and particularly the west.

Investments like these are vital to teachers, students, and the broader school community in order to ensure teachers can do their jobs to the best of their abilities, and local communities have schools they can be proud of.

Victoria’s school building boom has delivered more than 1,000 school upgrades and 56 new school projects across the state, supporting almost 5,000 construction jobs for Victorians.
