Work has now started on the $4 million upgrade of Ocean Grove Primary School.
Bellarine MP Lisa Neville today turned the first sod to mark the start of construction and upgrade of facilities.
The funding was allocated in the 2016/17 Victorian Budget and will involve upgrading existing facilities including the administration buildings and toilets, rebuilding the gymnasium and removing asbestos from the south wing.
The school will also receive three new modular buildings for use as classrooms, with the first expected to be on site by the end of 2017.
The modular buildings will replace old relocatable classrooms that contained asbestos.
“I have been pleased to work with the Ocean Grove Primary School on this upgrade and commend the school community including Council president David Kilpatrick and principal Darryl Diment for their work,” Ms Neville said.
“This investment will ensure high quality teaching at Ocean Grove Primary is matched by a learning environment where students are engaged, stimulated and encouraged to be creative thinkers. New and modernised school buildings at Ocean Grove Primary will contribute to school pride for students, staff, parents and the wider community.”
The new and upgraded facilities are part of the State Government’s $2.5 billion investment in better classrooms, upgraded facilities and new schools across the state.
This school building boom has delivered more than 1000 school upgrades and 56 new school projects across the state, supporting almost 5000 construction jobs for Victorians.
