DELIVERING A GREAT LOCAL SCHOOL FOR GREENSBOROUGH

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

Labor will invest $9.9 million for the next stage of the major upgrade, which includes new classrooms, LOTE facilities, a new arts building and a new administration building.

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.

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 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.

Quotes attributable to Minister for Education James Merlino

“The Liberals closed schools and cut funding to our education system and given the chance, they’ll do it again.”

“No matter where you live in Victoria, every student deserves to have a great school – a re-elected Andrews Labor Government will make sure they do.”

Quotes attributable to the Member for Bundoora Colin Brooks

“Under the previous government, the wonderful students and teachers at Greensborough Secondary College were forgotten. The buildings were a shambles and these kids deserve better.”

“I’m so proud to see the school being rebuilt and students and staff getting the facilities they deserve.”
