Ivanhoe students now have bigger, better classrooms and school facilities to learn in, thanks to the Andrews Government.

Treasurer of Victoria Tim Pallas and Member for Ivanhoe Anthony Carbines today visited Ivanhoe Primary School to officially open the school’s $2 million upgrade.

A relocatable building has been replaced with a permanent prep building and students now have four new learning spaces, an activities space and outdoor learning deck, as part of the project.

This major upgrade has given students and teachers at Ivanhoe Primary School the modern facilities they need to achieve their best.

The project also included developing a school masterplan to prepare for future upgrades.

Ivanhoe Primary School received a further $4.5 million in the Victorian Budget 2018/19 for stage two construction works, which include further new classrooms and upgrades.

This brings the Labor Government’s total investment in this great local school up to $6.5 million.

It’s part of more than $3.8 billion in new schools and upgrades to existing schools by the Labor Government to cater for the estimated 90,000 students expected to enter Victoria’s school system over the next five years.

This school building boom has delivered more than 1,300 school upgrades and 70 new school projects across the state, supporting almost 5,000 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.
