Member for Northern Victoria, Jaclyn Symes MP, today visited Beechworth Secondary College to open its $9.384 million upgrade, which includes a new science and resource centre, that comprises of two laboratories, learning spaces, common areas, seminar rooms and staff rooms.

The Labor Government has invested more than $9 billion across the state to deliver more than 1,600 school upgrades, supporting over 10,000 construction jobs for Victorians.

A total of 100 new schools will open by 2026 under the Labor Government’s school building boom, ensuring every child has a great local school and a great start in life.

This building boom will continue over the coming years, with the Government having already appointed builders to start delivering 14 new schools that will open in 2021.

The Labor Government is building the Education State so that every student can access a great local school and a quality education.
