MICKLEHAM PRIMARY UPGRADE A STEP CLOSER

Students at Mickleham Primary School are a step closer to getting the facilities they need for a great start in life, with an architect appointed to design the school’s exciting upgrade.

Member for Yuroke Ros Spence MP today announced that Law Architects has been appointed to design the school’s rebuild.

The upgrade will rebuild the school’s facilities and expand the school site, ensuring this much-loved local institution can continue to provide local kids with a terrific education for decades to come.

From the 2020-21 Infrastructure Planning and Acceleration fund, the school was allocated $7.49 million. In the 2020-21 State Budget, the school received $21.433 million.

In the past five years, the Labor Government has invested more than $9 billion in more than 1,600 school upgrades – creating more than 10,000 construction jobs – and is now ahead of schedule its commitment to open 100 new schools by 2026, with 48 new schools opening between 2019 and 2022.

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