Hampton Park students now have the facilities they need for a great start in life with the State Government completing an upgrade at Hampton Park Primary School.
Member for Narre Warren South Gary Maas MP, announced works are now complete on Hampton Park Primary School’s new community hub space.
The Andrews Labor Government provided $264,625 from the Minor Capital Works Fund for the new community hub space which will assist the school with a new enhanced learning environment for students and a space for connection to the community.
Mr Maas recently visited the school to inspect the new community hub while catching up with Principal Elizabeth Davey who has now left the school after 33 years of service. Ms Davey will be the new principal at Camms Road Primary School (interim name) in Cranbourne West.
One of Ms Davey’s last duties as principal was to show Mr Maas around the new facility which will enhance the school’s education programs.
Mr Maas thanked Ms Davey for all of her hard work and dedication to the school community and wished her every success in her future role.
In the past eight years, the Victorian Government has invested $12.8 billion in building new schools and more than 1,850 school upgrades, creating around 17,400 jobs in construction and associated industries. The Victorian Government is ahead of schedule in its commitment to deliver 100 new schools between 2019 and 2026, with 75 new schools opening between 2019 and 2024.
While much of this funding went on new schools and significant upgrades to help meet increasing demand, this fund is about delivering the small projects that make a big difference while also supporting local jobs.
The Victorian Budget 2022/23 invested $41.8 million in the Minor Capital Works Fund to improve learning spaces as well as the condition and character of schools.
