EXTRA LEARNING SPACE COMING TO ARNOLDS CREEK PRIMARY SCHOOL AND MELTON SECONDARY COLLEGE
Students at Arnolds Creek Primary School and Melton Secondary College will soon get state-of-the-art, double-storey relocatable classroom to meet growing student enrolments, thanks to the Andrews Labor Government.
Steve McGhie today announced that Arnolds Creek Primary School and Melton Secondary College will both receive modern, double-storey relocatable building, to offer flexibility to manage enrolment growth in time for the 2022 school year.
Arnolds Creek Primary School and Melton Secondary College are among 17 schools across Victoria to share in 25 of these buildings for 2022.
The relocatable buildings come complete with double-glazed windows, improved thermal insulation to reduce heat loss, acoustic insulation to reduce internal noise reverberation, and are built to an energy-efficient design.
The Labor Government allocated $114 million through the Victorian Budget 2021/22 to the Relocatable Buildings Program.
In the past seven years, the Government has invested more than $10.9 billion in building new schools and more than 1,700 school upgrades, creating around 13,500 jobs in construction and associated industries.
It is now ahead of schedule in its commitment to open 100 new schools by 2026, with 62 new schools opening between 2019 and 2024.
The Government is building the Education State so that every student can access a great local school and a quality education.
