DELIVERING A GREAT LOCAL SCHOOL FOR ASHWOOD

Ashwood families will get the world-class local school their kids deserve, with a re-elected Andrews Labor Government to deliver a massive upgrade to Parkhill Primary School.

Labor will invest $4 million to transform the school’s tired old classrooms and facilities into the modern learning environments students and staff need to achieve their best. This builds on the $5.3 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 Labor will deliver that for kids in Ashwood.

The Liberals didn’t spend a single cent to upgrade Parkhill Primary School and slashed $1 billion out of our education system, leaving schools to crumble and decay across the state.

In contrast, the Labor Government has invested more than $3.8 billion to build new schools and upgrade 1,300 schools across the state since coming to office four years ago.

That means thousands of Victorian kids now go to school every day and learn in brand new classrooms and modern learning environments.

It has also helped create more than 5,000 construction jobs for Victorians right around our state.

Building on this work, a re-elected Labor Government will also open 100 new schools across the state over the next eight years.

Labor will keep delivering for Victorians with more new schools and upgrades to existing schools so every child can get the best education, no matter where they live.
