Work Underway On New Clyde North East Primary School

Families in Melbourne’s growing south eastern suburbs are a step closer to having a new local primary school, thanks to the Andrews Labor Government.

Premier Daniel Andrews and Member for Bass Jordan Crugnale today joined happy students, teachers and workers to mark the start of construction at site of the new $20.8 million Clyde North East Primary School.

Clyde North East Primary School will include state-of-the-art classrooms, performing arts spaces and physical education centre with open play space.

The school will cater for 525 students from the fast-growing Clyde North community once completed and is set to open in 2020.

Clyde North East Primary School is part of the Labor Government’s school building boom that will see 100 new government schools open over the next eight years, including 7 brand new schools across Pakenham, Clyde and Cranbourne and a new junior secondary school to service Phillip Island and the west of Bass Coast Shire.

The Labor Government has invested $3.8 billion in improving, upgrading and building schools to ensure that every community can access a great local school where students can achieve their best.
