Site purchased for Keysborough South Primary School
The Andrews Labor Government has secured the site for the future Keysborough South P-6 School.
Member for Keysborough Martin Pakula said the site at 10 Homeleigh Road, Keysborough, has been purchased by the Victorian School Building Authority.
The site is currently occupied by the Australian Animal Protection Society’s (AAPS) Keysborough Animal Shelter. The AAPS will lease the site for the next 12 months, to allow time for the relocation of the shelter.
The site is opposite a major sporting complex and adjacent to new housing development. The project will now enter the design phase and is expected to cater for 475 students, with capacity for expansion if required.
The new Keysborough South Primary School is one of dozens of new school projects being delivered by the Labor Government as it builds the Education State.
It’s part of a $2.5 billion investment by the Labor Government in the past three budgets to improve classrooms, upgrade facilities and build new schools across the State.
This school building boom has delivered more than 1,000 school upgrades and 56 new school projects across the state, supporting almost 5000 construction jobs for Victorians.
