Better facilities on their way for Tucker Road Bentleigh Primary School

Students and teachers at Tucker Road Bentleigh Primary School will enjoy new modern facilities, including a new gym, following a significant injection of funding by the Andrews Labor Government.

The Labor Government is delivering for the second year running for schools in Bentleigh thanks to a $3 million upgrade at Tucker Road Bentleigh Primary School, Member for Bentleigh Nick Staikos announced today.

Building, fixing and upgrading school infrastructure across Victoria gives our teachers and students the environment they need to achieve their best.

The funding, from the upcoming 2016-17 Victorian Budget, is another step towards the Labor Government delivering the Education State, where every community has access to a school with great facilities.

Throughout the state, hundreds of new school infrastructure projects, just like the one set to happen at Tucker Road, are underway.
