THE Premier Daniel Andrews was at Somerville Primary School last Friday (16 June) to meet the students and teachers and discuss plans to improve the school’s basketball courts.
The school will receive $1million from the recent state budget to add a roof and lighting to its basketball courts.
Andrews toured the school with Hastings MP Paul Mercurio, who said he had pushed for the improvements and was pleased to have had “a seat at the table” to make it happen.
“This will be a great community asset, with the school able to make better use of a covered court and the community able to use the facility out of school hours and at night,” he said.
The budget also provided $1 million to Somers Primary School for a basketball court upgrade.
