Victoria University Secondary College students will have world-class facilities, with a re-elected Andrews Labor Government to build the first stage of the school’s masterplan.
Funding of $23.9 million will be provided to Victoria University Secondary College for the construction of the Science Tech Engineering Arts Maths (STEAM) Building, the Learning Village Building, and the Performing Arts and Food building.
The Liberals slashed $1 billion out of our education system, leaving schools to crumble and decay across the state.
The Andrews Labor Government has already funded the Victoria University Secondary College masterplan but there’s more work to do and only Labor will deliver the upgrades students and staff at Victoria University Secondary College need to achieve their best.
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 in 2014.
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’s also helped create 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.
As noted by Minister for Education James Merlino
“Only Labor will build the state-of-the-art schools our communities need – so everyone can get a first-class education, closer to home.”
As noted by Member for St Albans Natalie Suleyman
“Families in the western suburbs deserve access to great local secondary school facilities and that is exactly what we will deliver.”
As noted by Member for Kororoit Marlene Kairouz
“”We’re investing in the schools and services this local community desperately needs, while the Liberals plan to cut education funding.”
