DELIVERING A GREAT LOCAL SCHOOL FOR THORNBURY

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

Labor will invest $4.1 million to transform the school’s tired old facilities with an upgrade to block A, block B and block D.

Every child should have a good local school and the chance to succeed in life, and only a re-elected Labor Government will deliver that for kids in Thornbury.

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 four short 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.
