Eastern Victoria MP Harriet Shing announced on Wednesday 22 September that N&I Construction & Maintenance Pty Ltd had been appointed to build Lilydale High School’s $3.2 million upgrade, and Aspyer Group Pty Ltd had been appointed to build Lilydale Heights College’s $5.35 million upgrade.
“We are determined to continue our record investment in new and upgraded school facilities – because we know that the right teaching and learning environments enable more students to reach their full potential,” Ms Shing said.
The upgrade at Lilydale High School will see the building of outdoor learning areas, while refurbishing relocatable classrooms and demolishing the administration building. This project is part of the Lilydale District and Yarra Valley Education Plan.
“Upgrading Lilydale High School will give local students access to great classrooms and facilities – because you can’t deliver a first-rate education in second-rate classrooms.”
The upgrade at Lilydale Heights College will see the refurbishment of the Library/Humanities Building, associated site works and landscaping. This project is part of the Lilydale District and Yarra Valley Education Plan.
“The new library and humanities buildings are just part of the upgrades for Lilydale Heights College that will make a world of difference for students, staff and teachers, and transform the teaching and learning environment for this growing school,” Ms Shing said.
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.
