Lilydale Primary school’s community now has an upgrade that will continue to engage students in sport, provide the right safety settings, and encourage participation and inclusion in one of our fastest growing sports.
Eastern Victoria MP Harriet Shing announced on Thursday 16 September that works are now complete on Lilydale Primary School’s $62,670 upgrade to deliver refurbishments to the school’s futsal pitch and to install a surrounding fence to increase safety.
“The completion of this futsal court and fence upgrade will give students at Lilydale Primary a fantastic way to get active and stay healthy and is part of our ongoing commitment to new and upgraded schools across the state,” Ms Shing said.
“It’s so important that as we invest in the best learning environments for Victorian students, we are also providing facilities that local families and the school community can also enjoy.”
More than 300 Victorian government schools have been allocated funding to fast-track priority projects under the Minor Capital Works Fund to improve learning environments as well as the condition and character of schools.
The Victorian Budget 2021/22 invests $20 million in the Minor Capital Works Fund to improve learning spaces as well as the condition and character of schools.
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.
