DELIVERING A GREAT LOCAL SCHOOL FOR CLIFTON HILL

Clifton Hill families will get the world-class local school their children deserve, with a re-elected Andrews Labor Government to deliver a major expansion to Clifton Hill Primary School.

Labor will invest $12.8 million to construct new facilities as part of an expanded school to accommodate growing enrolments.  This builds on the land acquisition funding already provided by the Andrews Labor Government.

This will enable the school to accommodate more students and ensure that current students have enough space to play outside. This will also assist in alleviating enrolment pressures for surrounding schools.

The Liberals 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.

Only a re-elected Labor Government will keep delivering for Victorians with more new schools and upgrades to existing schools across the state.

“The Liberals closed schools and cut funding to our education system and given the chance, they’ll do it again.”

“No matter where you live in Victoria, every student deserves to have a great school and a re-elected Andrews Labor Government will make sure they do.”

Quote attributable to Member for Richmond Richard Wynne

“Clifton Hill Primary School is a great local school community and it deserves facilities that match.  Only Labor can be trusted to deliver the facilities that students and staff need, as our kids grow and learn.”
