Students at Wandong Primary will soon have improved teaching and learning facilities thanks to additional school maintenance funding. Member for Northern Victoria, Jaclyn Symes, today visited the school to announce that Domain National Pty Ltd Builders have been awarded the contract for the works. The $135,000 project includes roof repair, ceiling replacement and internal painting to the library, staff and administration areas, as well as maintenance to the art and craft block that includes toilet block refurbishment, roof repair and gutter replacement. Wandong Primary School is a great school and this funding boost will mean its facilities can be upgraded to match the high quality teaching and learning environment the school provides, Ms Symes said. Wandong Primary School is expected to grow by almost 100 students over the next 10 years. This investment will ensure that the facilities will continue to provide a quality learning environment where students are engaged, stimulated and encouraged to be creative thinkers. The Andrews Labor Government is building the Education State so that every Victorian student gets the opportunity for a great education and every community has access to a great school. The project is part of a $2.5 billion investment by the Labor Government to improve classrooms, upgrade facilities and build new schools across the state. This school building boom has created more than 1,000 school upgrades and 56 new school projects across the state, supporting almost 5000 construction jobs to ensure all Victorian families have access to a great school no matter where they live.
