Students at Hampton Park Primary School are big winners in the Andrews Labor Government’s first Education State Budget with $5 million provided to rebuild their school.

The Labor Government has used its first Education State Budget to inject a massive $730 million back into school infrastructure to build and upgrade schools across the state, ensuring students are educated in the school environments they deserve.

Under an extensive and re-vitalised school’s building program, scores of Victorian government schools will be renovated, refurbished and rebuilt, new schools will be constructed and brand-new relocatable classrooms will be delivered to meet demand at growing schools.

Hampton Park Primary School will receive $5 million to upgrade the school’s administrative facilities, toilets and staff facilities, plus art, library and computer rooms and also build a new science discovery centre
