The Victorian Government has launched an education plan for Flemington schools to deliver education excellence over the next decade.
Minister for Education James Merlino and Member for Essendon Danny Pearson attended a virtual event to launch the Flemington Education Plan, which involves Ascot Vale Special School, Debney Meadows Primary School, Flemington Primary School and Mount Alexander College.
The plan includes $2.1 million in additional funding to speed up planning to deliver upgrade works at Ascot Vale Special School, Flemington Primary School and Mount Alexander College.
The funding is part of the Government’s ongoing response to support long-term economic recovery in Victoria.
The education plan sees the four schools come together to foster education excellence for students by promoting a safe and supportive environment for students, emphasising excellent teaching, quality facilities and student-focused learning through a collaborative approach.
This plan will meet the needs of this growing and diverse community in Melbourne’s inner north-west, and will connect the knowledge, passion and expertise of local communities.
