Delivering A Great Local School For Beechworth

Beechworth Secondary College students will have a world-class science and resource centre to learn in, with a re-elected Andrews Labor Government to build the first stage of the school’s masterplan.

Announced by the Member for Northern Victoria Jaclyn Symes yesterday, Labor will invest $9.4 million to build the new science and resource centre, which will include two science laboratories, learning spaces, common areas, seminar rooms and staff rooms.

The Liberals didn’t spend a single cent on Beechworth Secondary College and slashed $1 billion out of our education system, leaving schools to crumble and decay across the state.

The Labor Government has already funded the Beechworth Secondary College masterplan but there’s more work to do and only Labor will deliver the upgrades students and staff at Beechworth Secondary College need to achieve their best.

Every child should have a good local school and the chance to succeed in life, and only Labor will deliver that for students in Beechworth.

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.
