Students at Sandringham East Primary School will have a new competition-grade stadium and gymnasium next year thanks to a $7.8 million injection from the Andrews Labor Government.

Stage one of the project will see a new stadium built, which will house a competition-grade gym, as well as music and art facilities, staff facilities and a canteen.

“This new facility will provide a big boost to the Sandy East Primary School family with great new spaces to enrich students’ learning experience in and outside the classroom. It is part of our Government’s plan to make sure every student has access to the latest facilities and modern teaching to give them a great start in life.”

The upgrade’s second stage will comprise a new state-of-the art, double-storey classroom building to support a range of teaching activities. Landscaping will also be done to boost outdoor learning activities.

Sandringham East Primary School was one of 35 schools to share in $12 million in the 2016-17 State Budget to undertake detailed designs and planning. This latest boost will provide the infrastructure.

The State Government is upgrading schools and building news ones under its commitment to provide safe and state-of-the-art facilities for all students.

The Government is investing billions of dollars to make Victoria the Education State – a state where every child, in every community, in every school, has access to a great education.

Victoria’s school building boom has delivered more than 1,200 school upgrades and 56 new school projects across the state, supporting almost 5,000 construction jobs for Victorians.
