Students in Beveridge will soon have access to first-rate classrooms and facilities, with work now under way for the new $19 million Beveridge Primary School campus.

Member for Yan Yean Danielle Green today visited the construction site in the Mandalay Estate at 30 Ambrosia Way, Beveridge.

ADCO has been appointed to build the new school, which will cater to over 500 students from Beveridge and surrounding areas, with work expected to be completed by term 1, 2020.

The Andrews Labor Government has invested $3.8 billion to deliver more than 1,300 school upgrades, supporting almost 5,000 construction jobs for Victorians.

Under the Labor Government’s school building boom, a total of 100 new schools will open over the next eight years, 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 appointed builders to start delivering 11 schools across the state that will open in 2020.

The Labor Government has delivered unprecedented investment to build and upgrade schools across Victoria to meet surging enrolments over the next five years.

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