Better buildings thanks to school pride at East Bentleigh Primary School
Students and teachers at East Bentleigh Primary School will soon be able to enjoy upgraded buildings and other facilities after receiving a School Pride grant from the Andrews Labor Government.
The funding, worth $150,000, was announced by Member for Bentleigh Nick Staikos, and was provided to the school thanks to the efforts of its community.
Better classrooms and improved school grounds make a huge difference for students.
This is in addition to $747 million in funding for Victorian schools already announced in September 2015 as part of the Labor Government’s plan to make Victoria the Education State.
In making Victoria the Education State, the Labor Government wants to ensure that every child has the opportunity to fulfil their potential.
Supporting students is vital for our state, as is building pride and confidence in our schools.
Future rounds of School Pride Funding will roll out through the 2016-17 year.
