Students at Tarneit Senior College are a step closer to getting the facilities they need for a great start in life, with an architect appointed to design the final stage of the school’s capital works.

Member for Tarneit Sarah Connolly today announced that Workshop Architecture Pty Ltd has been appointed to design the school’s $5.806 million final stage of development.

The upgrade will see the final stage built at Tarneit Senior College, including a new classroom wing which will allow the school to offer places to an extra 300 local students.

In the past seven years, the Victorian Government has invested more than $10.9 billion in building new schools and more than 1,700 school upgrades, creating around 13,500 jobs in construction and associated industries. It is now ahead of schedule in its commitment to open 100 new schools by 2026, with 62 new schools opening between 2019 and 2024.

The Labor Government is building the Education State to ensure that every student can access a great local school and get a quality education.
