Sunbury students now have bigger, better classrooms and school facilities to learn in, thanks to the Andrews Labor Government.

Member for Sunbury Josh Bull today visited Sunbury Primary School to open its $3.5 million upgrade promised in the Victorian Budget 2018/19.

This investment is part of a plan to reinvigorate Jacksons Hill. The Andrews Labor Government understands the local significance of Jacksons Hill – that is why we are preserving its history and heritage but also giving the Jacksons Hill and wider community the flagship facilities and services they deserve.

The school upgrade includes renovated and modernised heritage buildings, and a new multipurpose building, a library building and canteen. The project also delivered associated landscaping and site works.

The new library is named ‘Julie’s Place’ in honour of Mrs Julie Kostas, one of Sunbury Primary School’s longest-standing and much-loved teachers. Julie passed away in August 2021. She had a profound impact on the school community and to honour Julie’s legacy the school unveiled a commemorative plaque designed by the school in collaboration with Pmdl Architects.

In the past eight years, the Labor Government has invested more than $12.8 billion in building new schools and more than 1,850 school upgrades – creating around 17,400 local jobs in construction and associated industries.

The Labor Government is building the Education State so that every student can access a great local school and a quality education.
