We are upgrading Koo Wee Rup Secondary College.
This investment will upgrade the sporting facilities at Koo Wee Rup Secondary College to create a community sporting precinct for students, local sporting clubs and the wider community. It will include upgrading the oval and hockey pitch, and constructing a new pavilion.
The oval will be reshaped, with sub-surface works to improve the oval's performance, and the hockey pitch will be extended. The pavilion will include change rooms, amenities and a canteen.
Students will be able to use the facilities in school hours for PE classes and as a break-out space.
Out of school hours and on weekends, the upgraded facilities will provide the community and local sporting clubs with new opportunities to participate in sport, addressing growing demand in the area.
This will be a safe, high quality resource for the entire Koo Wee Rup community.
SHARED FACILITIES FUND
In the 2016-17 State Budget, the Victorian Government invested $50 million into the Shared Facilities Fund (SFF). The program funds schools, councils and other institutions to develop shared facilities such as early learning centres, sports facilities and community hubs.
These co-located and shared facilities improve connections between school and community, build a sense of collective purpose and transform neighbourhoods.
