Ivanhoe Electorate Schools

Mr CARBINES (Ivanhoe) (09:58:14) — It has been a year of cheer in the Ivanhoe electorate. Can I just say that at Viewbank College, my old school, the $11.5 million new performing arts centre, science, technology, engineering, arts and maths classrooms will open next year and benefit some 1200 students. Rosanna Golf Links Primary School, which is also the regional school for the deaf, will receive over $6 million for the redevelopment of classrooms and administration facilities — a school that my daughter will start prep in next year. That project will also conclude next year, and I thank people in the school community for their patience. At St Martin of Tours Primary School, a $3.5 million 10‑classroom redevelopment for over 500 students is now under construction. Master plans for a new school at Olympic Village in West Heidelberg and for Banyule Primary School to serve over 650 students have both been completed. Project work is now underway at Banyule Primary School for their new gym. At Ivanhoe Primary School a $2 million additional permanent classroom project is also to get underway over the school break. The $10 million Banyule‑Nillumbik Tech School is now under construction.
