Premier visits for Clyde Primary upgrade

Premier Jacinta Allan attended the official opening.

Clyde Primary School’s multil-million-dollar upgrade is now complete, with Premier Jacinta Allan and Deputy Premier Ben Carroll visiting the school to formally open the expansive works.

The state-of-the-art buildings will provide more spaces for local students in the expanding township of Clyde.

The State Government invested almost $23 million in the upgrade.

New classrooms will cater for specialised art, STEM and music facilities.

The flagship piece is the school’s new full-sized gymnasium coming with a competition-grade basketball court. Works were also completed to create new library and staff areas.

The school now has space for 50 more students, creating more space for the rapidly growing South East.

Premier Allan attended the official opening, accompanied by Deputy Premier and Minister for Education Ben Carroll, Bass MP Jordan Crugnale and Cranbourne MP Pauline Richards.

“These are fabulous new school buildings, built on a site that’s been delivering government education since 1910,” Premier Allan said.

“These new buildings are an example of the way the community has obviously grown and we want to make sure we continue to provide the facilities for government education.

“It’s credit to Michelle Mackenlay and the team here for the way they have overseen the building project and ensured teaching has continued during the building works.”
