Hughesdale Primary School students will benefit from a series of new modern classrooms, thanks to a $3.5 Million investment by the Andrews Government.

Minister for Education James Merlino and the Member for Oakleigh Steve Dimopoulos today visited Hughesdale Primary School to officially open the new, modern facilities.

“Hughesdale Primary School is a thriving school that encourages its students to pursue excellence. Now, the school has contemporary facilities that reflects their high quality of teaching.” Minister for Education James Merlino said.

This includes a double-storey classroom block with 8 new classrooms, 4 small group spaces, new student and staff amenities, designed to support contemporary teaching and learning.

New group learning spaces aim to encourage students to work together, while the additional break out areas are designed for continued discussion, to foster a culture of growth and curiosity throughout the school.

For nearly 100 years, Hughesdale Primary School has provided a first-rate education while strengthening family and community engagement.

Andrews Government is investing record funding in our schools to make Victoria the Education State. The Government has committed to opening 100 new schools by 2026 and upgrading more than 1,400 existing schools.

“Making sure our children have access to a quality schools and contemporary facilities is vital to ensuring kids get the most out of their education.” Member for Oakleigh Steve Dimopoulos said.

This investment ensures that every child has access to a great education and that our schools can cater for Victoria’s rapidly-growing population.

Modern learning environments help develop creative thinking, promote STEM literacy, and inspire learning for life, all of which are critical skills for future success. New and modern school buildings contribute to school pride for students, parents and the wider community, building their engagement with education.

By reforming schools, the Andrews Government is transforming communities. By sharing sport, cultural and health facilities, schools are becoming neighbourhood hubs.
