Neil Mitchell wants to help rebuild a primary school damaged by fire

The Victorian School Building Authority admits it’s “not good enough” that it’s taken so long to begin working on fixing a school severely damaged by fire.

Newcomb Park Primary suffered extensive damage in an arson attack on January 23.

The burned classrooms are still untouched.

But the authority has told Neil Mitchell work would begin in term and the school would be fixed in time for next year.

“It’s a big job, it’s a $1 million job, but there’s no doubt it’s a late project,” chief executive Chris Keating told Neil Mitchell.

“It’s not good enough for the school and we accept that.”
