DELIVERING A GREAT LOCAL SCHOOL FOR CRANBOURNE

Cranbourne families will get the world-class local school their kids deserve, with a re-elected Andrews Labor Government to deliver a massive upgrade to Cranbourne Secondary College.

Labor will invest $6.6 million to transform tired facilities at the college with an upgrade to the performing arts centre and refurbishment of the existing gymnasium.

This builds on the $10 million already provided by the Andrews Labor Government to upgrade the school.

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 70 new schools and upgrade 1,300 schools across the state since coming to office in 2014. This includes more than $113 million in the electorate of Cranbourne.

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 has 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.
