DELIVERING GREAT NEW SCHOOLS FOR ARMSTRONG CREEK

Families in Armstrong Creek will have access to the world-class local schools their kids deserve, with a re-elected Andrews Labor Government to open two new schools in the area over the next four years.

Victoria is growing and we need to plan ahead to make sure that every child has access to a great local school.

As part of the $850 million investment to be delivered by a re-elected Labor Government, another two schools are now fully funded:

  • Armstrong Creek West Primary School, opening 2020              

  • Armstrong Creek Secondary College, opening 2021

This builds on four other schools in the region - Bannockburn P-12 College, Armstrong Creek School, Hamlyn Views School and Torquay Coast Primary School - which all opened in 2018.

Across the state, investment from a re-elected Labor Government will see 45 schools open within the next four years.

A special planning fund for another 55 schools will also be implemented, which will ensure families can have confidence that Victoria’s education system is well prepared as the state grows.

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 Armstrong Creek.
