HORSHAM Special School is the latest beneficiary of a share of $6.59m allocated to 108 schools across the state for maintenance works.
The Planned Maintenance Program funding for essential work to grounds and classrooms such as fixing roofs and windows, painting, resurfacing floors and replacing windows, as well as repairing landscaping like pathways and stairs is backed by the Victorian government.
Horsham Special School will receive $5,000 to address high priority maintenance works identified in the school's Rolling Facilities Evaluation, including external floor revarnishing, handrail repair, wall repair and wall revarnishing.
Labor Member for Western Victoria, Jaala Pulford announced the funding on Friday and outlined works were determined via an evaluation system designed to provide up-to-date information on the condition of school infrastructure and create a more timely and targeted allocation of PMP funding.
Last year, every Victorian school shared in $515 million as part of the single largest boost to school maintenance ever undertaken.
This funding is ensuring existing buildings at Victoria's 1,500 state schools are safe, modern and properly maintained.
The Victorian Government is investing an unprecedented $7.2 billion in Victorian school infrastructure, which is delivering more than 1,460 school upgrades and 100 new schools by 2026 - ensuring every child can access a great local school where they can achieve their best.
"This investment is delivering on our priority to ensure that every Victorian school is well maintained and safe so that every student can learn in the best possible environment," Ms Pulford said.
