Upgrade and Modernisation
About the project
We upgraded and expanded Footscray Primary School. The works created an extra 200 enrolment places for local students.
We built a covered outdoor learning area (COLA) building, and a two-storey learning hub, where various learning opportunities are now available, including the bilingual program.
This school is part of the Footscray Learning Precinct, which champions excellence in learning and teaching in Melbourne's inner west at all stages of education. The precinct builds on the richness and diversity of the community and provides opportunities for learning in new ways.
From the 2020–21 Infrastructure Planning and Acceleration fund, the school was allocated $2.249 million in planning funding.
In the 2020–21 State Budget, the school received at least $18.217 million from a pool of more than $85 million to expand seven schools in high-growth areas.
