Mildura West Primary School tops the funding priority list for schools in the electorate at the next budget.
The school needs funding to complete its master plan, having late last year completing renovations and construct a new learning hub made up of two classrooms and breakout spaces.
Those upgrades were completed after the school received $1.8 million in the 2018-19 State Budget, but the priority now is to receive the funding needed to complete all the upgrades.
The Victorian Government has made significant school infrastructure investment in recent years including in the 2020-21 Budget with $10.5 million for Hopetoun P-12 College and $5.937 million for Merbein P-10 College.
Those two colleges will now be able to complete much-needed and overdue upgrades which will make a significant difference to the quality of learning for their students.
The new Wycheproof kindergarten has also opened.
The modular building has been constructed at Wycheproof P-12 College on the corner of Mount and High streets and has received significant funding from the Victorian Government as well as Buloke Shire Council and Federal Government.
Wycheproof kindergarten includes a 22-place room, long daycare rooms for 12 children and a maternal child health consultation room.
MEMBER for Mildura Ali Cupper will be looking to ensure her track record in attracting Victorian Government investment will continue in next week’s state budget.
“I’ve spent the last three years in Parliament putting Mildura back on the map after decades of neglect by the major parties, now it’s about capitalising on that momentum,” she said.
MEMBER for Mildura Ali Cupper has welcomed the announcement that the Victorian Government will invest $726,000 into dome-style roofing for the twin basketball courts at Ouyen P-12 College.
Following lobbying by Ms Cupper, the Victorian Government allocated the funding which will enhance the look and versatility of the popular outdoor space, making it an all-weather venue for sport and learning.
