BIG SCHOOL EXPANSION FOR GLADSTONE PARK SECONDARY COLLEGE
A re-elected Andrews Labor Government will deliver a big expansion to Gladstone Park Secondary College.
We’ll invest $11.7 million for the next stage of the school’s redevelopment, including a new administration building, STEM and library building, two new exterior netball/multipurpose courts and the expansion of the canteen.
Only a Labor Government will make sure local families have access to the best school facilities – supporting kids to do their best in the classroom.
Since coming to government, we have invested more than $12.8 billion in building and upgrading schools in every corner of the state.
We’re delivering on our commitment to build 100 new schools by 2026 with 75 already funded or opened and we’ve delivered more than 1,850 upgrades to schools since coming to government.
That means thousands of students are learning in more modern classrooms, science labs and libraries and using better facilities at schools like gyms and sports grounds.
And by building and upgrading schools across the state we’ve supported more than 17,400 jobs in construction alone.
We’ve invested more in student mental health and wellbeing than any other jurisdiction in Australia, putting mental health workers into every government school.
We’ve made sure every child has the chance to participate in the activities that make school fun, through the Camps, Sports and Excursions Fund.
And we’ve reformed the senior secondary school system, combining VCE and VCAL to create the VCE Vocational Major and Victorian Pathways Certificate – ensuring every young Victorian can get the education they need for the job they want.

“Our teachers do an amazing job educating Victorian students and that’s why we deliver so many new and upgraded classrooms and facilities at schools right across the state.”
“We want our teachers and students to have what they need to succeed in the classroom.”
Quotes attributable to the Member for Sunbury Josh Bull
“Every family deserves a great local school, and a re-elected Andrews Labor Government will deliver the next stage of the Gladstone Park Secondary College redevelopment – giving students the world-class facilities they deserve.”
“The best teachers aren’t able to do the best job in ageing classrooms and out-of-date facilities. That’s why the Andrews Labor Government has invested more than $12.8 billion to build and upgrade schools in every corner of the state – making sure every kid has every chance.”
