Member for Bendigo East, Jacinta Allan, today announced that Victory Christian College is one of 38 schools across Victoria sharing in almost $50 million to build classrooms and upgrade facilities as part of the Government’s Capital Funding Program for Non-Government Schools.

Victory Christian College will receive $2 million to construct Stage 1 of the Victory Christian College Expansion. This massive project includes a two storey Year 9 & 10 complex, associated staff admin areas, science and art facilities, storage areas, amenities and the development of the adjacent sports oval.

A total of 12 independent schools and 26 Catholic will share the almost $50 million to upgrade and expand their facilities under the fund’s third round – giving more Victorian families the opportunity to attend a great local school of their choice.

The Victorian Government launched the $120 million Capital Funding Program for Non-Government Schools in 2015 to help expand and upgrade Catholic and independent schools, matching the sectors’ investments in school infrastructure.

The fund is part of a $2.5 billion Government investment over three years to build the Education State, giving every student access to a great local school with a great education.

Victoria’s school building boom has delivered more than 1,000 school upgrades and 56 new school projects across the state, supporting almost 5,000 construction jobs for Victorians.

One in three Victorian students attend Catholic and independent schools, making them a vital part of the state’s education system.
