Education Minister Martin Dixon today officially opened a major $5.62 Million redevelopment project at Reservoir West Primary School.

Mr. Dixon toured stages one and two of the project that provides a modern learning environment for Reservoir West students.

“It is fantastic to go out and see the exciting redevelopment work that has completely transformed Reservoir West Primary School.” Mr. Dixon said.

“I am told the students were really excited to be returning to school this year to 12 brand new classrooms, a library and information and communications technology centre and a gymnasium with specialist facilities such as a music room, art room and canteen.”

“It’s also a great outcome for the local community that can also enjoy using the brand new gym and music room, making Reservoir West Primary a real asset for the whole Reservoir community.” Mr. Dixon said.

“I was impressed to see that two of the buildings have been named after significant people in the school community particularly the Milburn Classroom Wing named after the late Gary Milburn, a former teacher at the school, and the W.E. Scott Library in honour of the school’s dedicated library technician Peter Scott.”

“These new school buildings will provide a wonderful learning setting for current and future students and will help young people in Reservoir to realise their potential.” Mr. Dixon said.

Reservoir West Primary School was established in 1954 and currently caters for an enrolment of 258 students.

The Victorian Government provided $4.36 Million in funding for the project, with $1.16 Million from the Commonwealth and almost $100,000 from the Reservoir West school community.
