Students at Kingston Heath Primary School will benefit from state-of-the-art, single-storey relocatable classrooms which will help their school meet growing enrolment demand.

Minister for Education James Merlino said the Government invested $75 million in this year’s Budget to build and refurbish relocatable classrooms to help address enrolment pressures created by Victoria’s booming population.

One hundred and sixty-eight modern single-storey relocatable buildings will be installed in 132 schools across Victoria by the start of the 2018 School Year.

Each single-storey units contains two classrooms in either new or completely refurbished buildings that are built off-site and transported to the schools.

The modular classrooms are all double glazed with heat and noise insulation and reverse cycle air conditioning.

This year’s allocation of relocatable classrooms adds to the 237 relocatable buildings provided to 164 schools last year thanks to an investment of $63.6 million.

The Victorian Government is building the Education State so that every Victorian gets the opportunity for a great education and every community has access to a great school.

The Victorian Government has invested an unprecedented $2.5 billion in school infrastructure, over the past three Budgets, in part to cater for the estimated 90,000 students who are expected to enter the school system over the next five years.
