Benalla P-12 STEAM Building

Students at Benalla P-12 College are getting the best facilities to reach their full potential thanks to the Andrews Labor Government.

Member for Northern Victoria Jaclyn Symes today officially opened the new $12 Million Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths (STEAM) building.

This new STEAM building is in addition to the $9.1 million Year 10-12 Hub and Trade Centre which was officially opened in 2019.

The Andrews Labor Government is investing a further $14.2 Million for the next stage of upgrades. This stage will include new food technology classrooms, staff and junior school buildings, as well as a canteen, with construction expected to start soon.

In the past nine years, the Labor Government have invested more than $14.9 billion to build new schools and complete more than 1,940 school upgrades.

We are delivering 100 new schools by 2026, with 75 new schools opening between 2019 and 2024 – ensuring every student can access a great local school and a quality education no matter where they live.

“As a past student I am genuinely so proud to officially open the new STEAM building at Benalla P-12.”

“Refurbished and modern buildings give students and families even more reasons to be proud of their school and provide our young people of Benalla with the best educational opportunities.”

“Upgrading and expanding Benalla P-12 is another wonderful example of our commitment to giving Victorian children the first-rate education they deserve.”
