LABOR GETTING ON WITH EUROA SCHOOL UPGRADE
Euroa Secondary College students are another step closer to starting their upgrade, with Taylor Oppenheim Architects Pty Ltd appointed to design a $950,000 upgrade of the school.
Labor Upper House Member for Northern Victoria, Jaclyn Symes, today visited the school with Labor’s candidate for Euroa, Fionna Deppeler-Morton, to announce the appointment.
The $950,000 upgrade was secured earlier this year when Ms Symes secured the funding from Education Minister, James Merlino.
“The appointment of architects is the next milestone in ensuring that the upgrade of Euroa Secondary College delivers important new school facilities for both students and teachers,” Ms Symes said.
“This is an amazing school with fantastic staff led by Principal Harold Cheung, but the reality is the school is looking tired, that’s why Labor is delivering $950,000 to upgrade priority areas.
“Labor has delivered some significant projects for the township of Euroa from upgraded saleyards, securing public beds at Euroa Health, kindergarten upgrades, microgrid project to reduce energy costs, new netball and cricket facilities and we will continue to make Euroa a priority.”
Ms Deppeler-Morton welcomed the appointment is the architect saying “I’ve visited Euroa Secondary College on numerous occasions and this is the start of some really important work, if I’m elected I want to build on this investment and deliver state of the art facilities for this wonderful school community.”
Only under Labor are we investing in public education so that every Victorian student can get a great education and every community has access to a great local school.
This includes an unprecedented $3.8 billion investment to improve classrooms, upgrade facilities and build new schools across the state.
This school building boom has delivered more than 1,300 school upgrades and 70 new school projects across the state, supporting more than 5,000 construction jobs for Victorians.
