Students at McKinnon Primary School will benefit from a new upgrade, thanks to the Andrews Labor Government.

The $280,000 investment, delivered as part of the Victorian Budget 2017/18, will provide a new synthetic sports ground, complete with a running track.

The Labor Government is building and upgrading a record number of schools to make sure every child has every chance to succeed.

“I am so proud to have been able to deliver this important funding boost to McKinnon Primary School, which will provide a much needed upgrade to the second site on the other side of Tucker Road.”

“With around 800 students, McKinnon Primary School’s current open space is inadequate. The funding will provide a high quality sports ground that will serve students well into the future.”

“Parents and staff lobbied me for this upgrade and we will now get the job done.”
