DELIVERING A GREAT LOCAL SCHOOL FOR STRATHMORE

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

Labor will invest $7.3 million to construct a new arts, science and physics building. 

This builds on the $13.8 million already provided by the Andrews Labor Government for upgrades at the school, including a new three-storey building with general-purpose classrooms and specialist facilities. 

The Liberals didn’t spend a single cent on Strathmore Secondary College 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 70 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. 

It has also helped create more than 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.
