DELIVERING A GREAT LOCAL SCHOOL FOR WENDOUREE
Wendouree families will get the world-class local school their kids deserve, with a re-elected Andrews Labor Government to deliver a massive upgrade to Mount Rowan Secondary College.
Labor will invest $3.5 million to further upgrade school facilities including the gym and music block and a new synthetic court. This builds on the more than $12 million already provided by the Andrews Labor Government to upgrade the school.
Every child should have a good local school and the chance to succeed in life, and only a re-elected Andrews Labor Government will deliver that for kids in Wendouree.
The Liberals slashed $1 billion out of our education system and left schools to crumble and decay across the state.
The Labor Government has invested more than $3.8 billion to build 70 new schools and upgrade 1,300 schools across the state since coming to office in 2014.
That means thousands of Victorian kids now go to school every day and learn in new classrooms with better technology and facilities, like new gyms and science labs.
It’s also helped create 5,000 construction jobs for Victorians right around our state.
A re-elected Labor Government will keep delivering for Victorians with more new schools and upgrades to existing schools across the state.
