Building the future our kids deserve

As kids get back into the classroom, this Budget delivers the single biggest investment ever in our schools – making sure students have the classrooms, libraries and learning spaces they deserve.

Kids playing at school

A $1.9 billion school building blitz delivered in this Budget will bring our total investment in improving and building new schools to more than $9.2 billion over the past five years.

This latest investment is expected to support more than 6,400 in construction and supply jobs across Victoria.

As part of the build, and to help meet the needs of local families, this Budget invests in a brand-new school and four extra stages at new schools, while purchasing land for a further 11 schools.

This Budget will see a further 123 schools across Victoria receive funding for upgrades, delivering new classrooms, gyms and learning spaces for local kids.

Improvements at 39 specialist schools

$389 million will also support improvements at 39 specialist schools across Victoria, giving every child every opportunity to grow confidence, make friends and be their best.

Inclusive Schools Fund

A further $20 million will see the Inclusive Schools Fund deliver improved learning spaces such as playgrounds, outdoor sensory areas and quiet re-engagement spaces.
