DELIVERING A GREAT LOCAL SCHOOL FOR MELTON
Melton families will get the world-class local school their kids deserve, with a re-elected Andrews Labor Government to deliver a massive upgrade to Staughton College.
Labor will invest $6.5 million to transform the school’s tired old classrooms and facilities into the modern learning environments students need to achieve their best.
Every child should have a good local school and the chance to succeed in life, and only Labor will deliver that for kids in Melton.
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 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 best classrooms.
It has also helped create more than 5,000 construction jobs for Victorians right around our state.
Building on this work, Labor 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 across the state.
