Students at Southern Autistic School in East Bentleigh now have bigger, better classrooms and school facilities to learn in, thanks to the Andrews Labor Government.

Member for Bentleigh Nick Staikos today announced that construction of Stage One of the school redevelopment is complete. The Government has also funded Stage Two.

In the past seven years, the Victorian Government has invested more than $10.9 billion in building new schools and more than 1,700 school upgrades, creating around 13,500 jobs in construction and associated industries. It is now ahead of schedule in its commitment to open 100 new schools by 2026, with 62 new schools opening between 2019 and 2024.

The Labor Government is building the Education State so that every student can access a great local school and a quality education.
