Several Gippsland schools are set to receive a one-off funding boost as part of the Andrews Government’s $24 million Planned Maintenance Program.

Grey Street Primary School in Traralgon will receive $85,600 to maintain storm water drains.


Member for East Gippsland Harriet Shing unveiled the package during a visit to Koo Wee Rup Secondary College today, where $1,250,000 will be used to upgrade roofing.

Wonthaggi Secondary College will receive $109,000 for structural works, Neerim District Secondary College will get $94,300, and recently renamed Foster Secondary College has been allocated $1.3 million.

Ms Shing said a lot was being done to improve school buildings in Gippsland.

The funding “will help more students to get the most out of their education,” Ms Shing said in a media release.


“These important upgrades will ensure that more school communities throughout Gippsland get the support and funding they need,” she said.

The past two years have seen just over $100 million delivered to Victorian schools. The Andrews Government has pledged $2.5 billion to upgrade school facilities throughout the state.
