The St Albans community will soon benefit from a massive school infrastructure boost, with the Andrews Labor Government delivering upgrades across the Catholic and independent education sectors.

Member for St Albans, Natalie Suleyman MP, today announced Holy Eucharist Primary School was part of 34 projects across Victoria that will share in $70 million under Round 3 of the Non-Government Schools Capital Fund, which is delivering new schools, increasing capacity and providing modern facilities, as well as supporting the removal of asbestos and cladding.

Holy Eucharist Primary School will receive $2 million to upgrade facilities.

In the past seven years, the Labor Government has invested more than $10.9 billion in building new schools across the state and more than 1,700 school upgrades, creating 13,500 jobs in construction and through the supply chain.
