DELIVERING A GREAT LOCAL SCHOOL FOR CLYDE
Clyde families will get the world-class local school their kids deserve, with a re-elected Andrews Labor Government to deliver a major expansion to Clyde Primary School.
Labor will invest $22.8 million to construct new facilities as part of an expanded school to accommodate growing enrolments. This builds on the land acquisition funding already delivered by the Andrews Labor Government.
This will enable the school to accommodate more students and ensure that current students have enough space to play outside. This will also assist in alleviating enrolment pressures for surrounding schools.
Every child should have a good local school and the chance to succeed in life, and Labor will deliver that for kids in Clyde.
The Liberals 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 new classrooms with better technology and facilities, like new gyms and science labs.
Building on this work, Labor will also open 100 new schools across the state over the next eight years.
It has also helped create more than 5,000 construction jobs for Victorians right around our state.
Only Labor will keep delivering for Victorians with more new schools and upgrades to existing schools across the state.
