Wednesday, 28 April 2021

Students at Myrtleford P-12 College are a step closer to getting the facilities they need for a great start in life, with an architect appointed to design the school’s exciting upgrade.

Member for Northern Victoria Jaclyn Symes announced that Jovaras Westland Partnership Pty Ltd has been appointed to design the school’s $9,430,000 upgrade.

The project aims to modernise the school and the architects will work with school leaders to ensure the upgrade helps achieve their educational goals and that improvements are targeted where it is needed most.

In the past five years, the Labor Government has invested more than $9 billion in more than 1,600 school upgrades – creating more than 10,000 construction jobs – and is now ahead of schedule its commitment to open 100 new schools by 2026, with 48 new schools opening between 2019 and 2022.

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