OLA School upgrade underway soon

The major upgrade of Our Lady of the Assumption Parish Primary School in Cheltenham will be underway soon!

The Andrews Government has invested $1.98 million in the project, which will refurbish the oldest building on the school site and provide a new library, STEM Centre and community hub. The upgrade will also improve outdoor spaces.

Works are expected to be completed later this year.

The Victorian Budget 2021/22 invests $1.6 billion to build new schools and improve existing schools to make sure our kids have the bright futures they deserve.

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 get a quality education.
