About the project

East Gippsland bushfires caused significant damage to Clifton Creek Primary School in early 2020.

Students were temporarily relocated to nearby Nicholson Primary School to ensure their classes continued and they had the facilities they needed. Support services, including counselling, have been made available to staff and students. The Victorian Government committed to rebuilding the school, and we delivered relocatable classrooms for students to use while we completed this work.

Their new permanent facilities include kitchen and sensory gardens, shade sails, a new bus shelter, and additional space for community uses such as adult education and fetes. 

These plans were shaped by the community consultation we ran in March 2020. Thank you to everybody who contributed to this. 


In 2020, $4.245 million was allocated to the school. The school received an additional $29,000 in 2020.
