NEW BUILDINGS FOR DOREEN AND EPPING SCHOOLS

Local students will soon be learning in new first-rate classrooms and facilities they deserve, thanks to the Andrews Labor Government.

State Members of Parliament, Danielle Green and Bronwyn Halfpenny today announced that Hazel Glen College and Harvest Home Primary will receive new architecturally designed double storey relocatable buildings, which will further help the schools deliver a 21st century education. The total cost of the 12 new classrooms in three new buildings is approximately $2.9 million.

From day 1 of Term 1 in 2020, Hazel Glen College and Harvest Home Primary students will be learning in brand new buildings, which incorporate the latest innovative and sustainable design. Each new building includes four new classrooms with double glazed windows and external shades, as well as special wall and ceiling acoustic treatments to improve classroom sound clarity – providing a comfortable learning space for students.

The buildings will be manufactured off-site then assembled at the school. This innovative process of building manufacture and delivery means that Hazel Glen College and Harvest Home Primary students will be learning in these first-class facilities more quickly. The double storey design reserves more student play space at each school.

The Labor Government has invested $5.6 billion to deliver more than 1,400 school upgrades, which supports over 7,500 construction jobs for Victorians.

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