A new school in Beveridge is under construction for students, with work expected to be completed by term one next year.

Member for Yan Yean Danielle Green visited the building site in the Mandalay Estate last week, meeting with future students, principal Steven Fernando and ADCO Construction contractors.

“It’s fantastic to see the progress, this community fought so hard to get these new school buildings,” Ms Green said.

“School enrolment numbers are growing across Beveridge and district.

“By building this new campus we are providing local families with state-of-the-art learning facilities and creating bright futures for our students,” Ms Green said.

“Beveridge families have been calling for this new school campus and I look forward to continuing my work with the community as this new campus becomes a reality.”

The school will cater to more than 500 students.Mr Fernando said the staff and students were excited about the new school being built.

Under a State Government school building program, a total of 100 new schools will open during the next eight years.
