$7.3 Million for Western Autistic School

Thousands of Victorian students with disabilities will benefit from better classrooms and school buildings thanks to a funding injection by the Andrews Labor Government to plan and upgrade our special schools.

Premier Daniel Andrews today joined Member for Niddrie Ben Carroll to announce $55.6 million to upgrade 12 special schools and start planning work on three more as part of the Victorian Budget 2018/19. $7.3 million was put aside for Western Autistic School to upgrade its Niddrie Campus. 

Victoria’s special schools provide an important option for families of children with disabilities – offering specialised education programs and support to ensure every student, wherever they go to school, gets the individual attention they deserve.

The Andrews Labor Government has now delivered more than $167 million to re-build, expand and upgrade 43 Victorian special schools.
