Delivering New Facilities For Students In Melbourne’s East

30 May 2019

Students in Bayswater are one step closer to having the facilities they deserve with a $1.39 million investment to deliver brand new, architecturally designed classrooms thanks to Andrews Labor Government.

Minister for Education James Merlino and Member for Bayswater Jackson Taylor today visited Bayswater Primary School to announce the investment which will provide a permanent modular building as part of the 2019-20 Victorian Budget.

The building project at Bayswater Primary is estimated to take approximately 38 weeks from commencement to completion and will replace an old building at the school which will be demolished.

Traditional construction methods would see the build time take anywhere from 12-18 months. Modular buildings are constructed off-site and delivered to the school, reducing the disruption to the school and on-site safety risks.

The $1.39 million for Bayswater Primary School is part of a record $1.82 billion investment into Victoria’s education infrastructure in this year’s Victorian Budget – delivering on the Labor Government’s promise to make Victoria the Education State.
