BUILDING THE EDUCATION STATE
The Andrews Labor Government is getting on with delivering schools and upgrades Victorian students and teachers rely on.
Member for Sunbury Josh Bull announced $13.4 million for Diggers Rest Primary School today to transform, upgrade, and modernise the school.
You can’t get a first-rate education, in a second-rate classroom. It’s why we’re going to upgrade Diggers Rest Primary School to deliver the next stage of the masterplan, including a new School Community Hub and Senior Learning Centre.
Because under an Andrews Labor Government, we’re giving every child the opportunity to achieve their full potential.
In the past seven years, the Victorian Government has invested more than $10.9 billion in building new schools and more than 1,700 school upgrades, creating around 13,500 jobs in construction and associated industries. It is now ahead of schedule in its commitment to open 100 new schools by 2026, with 62 new schools opening between 2019 and 2024.
The Labor Government is building the Education State so that every student can access a great local school and a quality education.
