Warringa Park School in Werribee South is set to undergo a $7.97 million upgrade.

Werribee MP Tim Pallas visited the school’s Cayleys Road campus last week to announce that architecture firm Morton Dunn has been appointed to design the project.

The upgrade will involve construction of the school’s stage two masterplan, including removal of three relocatable buildings for the creation of classrooms, an art room extension, a library fit-out, and construction of a new shed and vocational store.

The school’s former art west building will be turned into a student support room and a meeting room.

“Warringa Park School families are a step closer to getting the great local school facilities their kids need to thrive,” Mr Pallas said.

“We’re making sure that our schools have the best facilities, our classrooms have the best teachers and that every child is given every chance to succeed.”

Last year, Mr Pallas announced that the Cayleys Road campus would undergo a $14.09 million transformation to accommodate 181 students in a dual-mode special school/special development school.

“These local upgrades are part of the school building boom that is happening right across Victoria,” Mr Pallas said.
