DELIVERING A GREAT LOCAL SCHOOL FOR KEW

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

Labor will invest $10.8 million for the next stage of the major upgrade, which includes construction of a new two-level STEM building. This will house a STEM centre on the ground floor and an Enquiry and Research Learning Centre on the first floor.

The Liberals slashed $1 billion out of our education system, leaving schools to crumble and decay across the state.

In contrast, the Andrews 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.

 “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 Ivanhoe Anthony Carbines

“Kew High School is a school of choice for many Ivanhoe families. This investment will ensure that they will have the STEM skills which will play a big role in our state’s future. We want to make sure that local kids at Kew High school don’t miss out.
