    Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery announced today the appointment of Zuideveld Marchant Hur Architects to design a new facility at Clifton Hills Primary School.


    A new covered assembly area will be the focus of the upgrade, which will include storage and office space.

    Planning is already under way, with construction anticipated to be completed towards the end of 2023.
