Victorian independent and Catholic schools are set to receive a $402 million funding boost as the state government invests into educational infrastructure. The financial backing will also support the removal of dangerous asbestos and cladding in non-government schools.
The funding is part of a record $1.82 billion investment in Victoriaâ€™s education infrastructure in theÂ Victorian Budget 2019/20Â â€“ delivering on the Governmentâ€™s promise to make Victoria the Education State.
Minister for Education James Merlino and Member for Niddrie Ben Carroll paid a visit to the new Helene Province building at Ave Maria College, to open applications for the first round of the $402 million Non-Government Schools Capital Fund.
This contribution to non-government schools more than triples the capital funding support provided to the sector since 2015.
â€œEvery student deserves access to modern school facilities, and with more than one third of Victorian students attending non-government schools we are making sure they benefit from our record investment into creating the Education State,â€ Merlino said.
The Victorian Government contributed $500,000 towards the construction of the Helene Province building, a three-storey learning centre including classrooms and a refurbished library.
Victoria is growing faster than any other state or territory with schools needed to accommodate more than 90,000 extra students by 2022.
