What wonderful news!

If you haven’t heard the fantastic news – Reservoir Primary School will receive at least $15 million as announced in the Victorian Budget 2020 / 2021.

The following is a small part of the media release from the Minister for Education, James Merlino and the Member for Preston, Robin Scott.

This year, Reservoir families have done an incredible job in supporting students to learn from home. As kids get back into the classroom, we want to make sure they have the fantastic new learning spaces they deserve. This is an investment in our kids and their future. Because every child, no matter where they go to school, deserves access to state-of-the-art facilities.

And this is on top of the $1.8 million announced earlier this year through the Infrastructure Planning and Acceleration Fund which will cover the planning phase in readiness for the build.

The announcement of $15 million is exciting for us all. Early in 2021, I plan to hold a parent forum so we can discuss ideas and have these on hand when architects proceed with the planning phase.

Works should start during the Christmas vacation on demolition of the canteen area and relocation of our multi-purpose room in preparation for our much sought after gym. Reservoir Primary is extremely fortunate to have these funding amounts allocated, the future is looking extremely bright!
