Students in Kyneton now have access to the first-rate facilities and classrooms they deserve, thanks to the Andrews Government.
Minister for Education James Merlino today visited Kyneton Secondary College to officially open its completed $10.9 Million upgrade project.
“We’re making sure our schools have the best facilities and classrooms so that local students have access to the skills they need to succeed at school and beyond.” Minister for Education James Merlino said.
“I am very excited for everyone who has helped turn Kyneton Secondary College’s vision into a reality, and have no doubt students will benefit from these great new school facilities.”
Project includes an upgrade of Building 2 to create the new learning centre for Year 7 and 8, which includes flexible learning spaces and a new library.
Construction of a new Trades Hub has also been completed, which will provide learning areas for specialist trades such as automotive, engineering and construction and flexible workshops to support vocational education.
Andrews Government has invested $3.8 Billion in improving, upgrading and building schools to ensure that every community can access a great local school where students are supported to achieve their best.
“This fantastic upgrade will help give students across the region the support they need to succeed in their chosen career and in life.” Member for Macedon Mary-Anne Thomas said.
“It is great to be able to have facilities that can help a hands-on approach to learning at the school.”
A total of 100 new schools will open over the next 8 years under the Andrews Government’s school building boom, ensuring every child has a great local school and a great start in life.
