The Victorian Budget 2022/23 provides $11.20 million each to Aitken Hill Primary School and Gaayip-Yagila Primary School to expand their permanent capacity by 300 places and to reduce the need for temporary, relocatable facilities, so more kids in our growing community can learn at these wonderful local schools.
The school year is well underway, and students in Greenvale are settling into their brand new school – part of the Andrews Labor Government’s work to deliver a great education for families in Victoria’s fastest-growing areas.
Tenders for construction have been put out as part of a $491.6 million investment to build 10 of the 13 new schools, contributing to the Labor Government’s promise to opening 100 new schools across the state by 2026. This includes Merrifield West Secondary School (interim name).
Families in Mickleham are one step closer to sending their children to Gaayip-Yagila Primary School with the construction now complete and ready for classes in 2021.
Minister for Education James Merlino and Member for Yuroke Ros Spence today announced Mickleham Primary School will receive a $21.433 million upgrade, following the more than $7 million announced through the Infrastructure Planning and Acceleration Fund, to acquire land and rebuild the school on an expanded site.
