The Andrews Labor Government is investing record funding in our schools to make Victoria the Education State.

Member for Sunbury Josh Bull today visited Salesian College Sunbury to open and tour the new Food Technology Centre. The Food Technology Centre is Part A of a three-part project. Part B and C include refurbishment of the STEM building and Design Manufacturing Learning Centre (completion is due in 2023).

The Andrews Labor Government contributed $5 million towards the project through the Non-Government Schools Capital Fund.

This investment ensures that every child has access to a great education and our schools are equipped to prepare students for the 21st century. This means modern learning environments that promote STEM literacy, creative thinking and inspire lifelong learning.

In the past seven years, the Andrews Labor 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.

By upgrading schools, the Labor Government is transforming communities.
