DELIVERING A GREAT LOCAL SCHOOL FOR PASCOE VALE

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

Labor will invest $1 million to transform the school’s tired old facilities with the construction of a new school hall. This builds on the $3.6 million already provided by the Andrews Labor Government to upgrade the school.

The Liberals didn’t spend a single cent to upgrade Pascoe Vale South Primary School and 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.

The school building boom has also supported 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.
