$21m Bonus for Frankston Schools

By Rachael Vrana

Frankston High School will undergo a “massive redevelopment” worth up to $18.5 million, the state government announced last week. The school will receive an initial grant of $8.5 million at the start of July for major redevelopment works, while the Coalition government has pledged to provide a further $10 million for further upgrades should it retain power in the November election.

Frankston Special Development School, which provides specialised learning opportunities for 134 primary and secondary students with moderate to severe intellectual disabilities, will also receive funding of $2.5 million to improve facilities.

Education Minister Martin Dixon visited both schools on Thursday along with the recently appointed Liberal candidate for Frankston, Sean Armistead, to announce the $21 million funding windfall. “Under a re-elected Coalition Governement, Frankston High School will undergo a massive redevelopment worth a total of $18.5 million, with an initial $8.5 million availabe from July 1st this year,” he said.

“This fantastic announcement for students and teachers at Frankston High School and the Frankston community, which had missed out repeatedly under the previous Labor government.” Frankston High School principal John Albiston welcomed news the school would definetly receive $8.5 million in this year’s budget and potentially millions of dollars more in future years.

“We are overwhelmed with ideas as to how to use such funds to allow Frankston High School to keep going onwards and upwards,” Mr Albiston said. “Mr Dixon acknowledged that we have an outstanding reputation … and at times great schools get overlooked with regards to funds. But he said it was important we received such funds to do with what we think is best for the school.”

In announcing the funding deal for Frankston Special Development School, Mr Dixon said the Coalition government was committed to building better learning environments “for all Victorian students.” “This funding can be used to redevelop and modernise school facilities and will ensure students have access to a high quality learning environment.”
