Neerim District Secondary College will receive a one-off funding boost as part of the Andrews Government’s $24 million Planned Maintenance Program.
The school will receive $94,317 to upgrade roofing as part of the program.
Member for East Gippsland Harriet Shing unveiled the package during a visit to Koo Wee Rup Secondary College, where $1,250,000 will be used to upgrade roofing.
Ms Shing said a lot was being done to improve school buildings in Gippsland.
The funding “will help more students to get the most out of their education,” Ms Shing said.
“These important upgrades will ensure that more school communities throughout Gippsland get the support and funding they need.”
Recently renamed Foster Secondary College will receive $1.3 million as part of the program, with Wonthaggi Primary School taking $109,187.
The past two years have seen just over $100 million delivered to Victorian schools. The Andrews Government has pledged $2.5 billion to upgrade school facilities throughout the state.
