Upgrade architect chosen

07 Sep 2016 Seymour Telegraph, Seymour VIC (General News) The vast $4.46 million building modernisation to Broadford Secondary College moved a step closer on Friday. ClarkeHopkinsClarke was appointed to design the multimillion dollar school upgrade. Member for Northern Victoria Jaclyn Symes, who paid a visit to the college to see the schools future plans firsthand, said the upgrade would include replacing the main school wing, as well as maintenance to the existing facilities. Ms Symes said the architects would now develop a detailed project scope for the future works. As the Upper House member for the area, and as a Broadford resident, I am very proud to have obtained this funding for my community and its exciting to see it get under way with the appointment of architects, Ms Symes said. These works will provide students and staff with significantly improved facilities which are long overdue. Labor is delivering better school facilities in the Mitchell Shire because we know that quality infrastructure gives our students and teachers the learning environment they need to achieve their best. Ms Symes said the Victorian Government is building the Education State so that every Victorian gets the opportunity for a great education and every community has access to a great school. The 2016-17 Victorian Budget invests more than $924 million in building new schools and upgrading classrooms, while a $200 million funding boost will help to better maintain existing school facilities.
