Delivering A Great Local School For Geelong

14 September 2018

Geelong families will get the world-class local school their kids deserve, with a re-elected Andrews Labor Government to upgrade Newcomb Secondary College

A re-elected Labor Government will provide $6 million to Newcomb Secondary College to upgrade Building A and the Junior Wing making sure the school facilities are as great as the learning that takes place there.

The Liberals slashed $1 billion out of our education system and left schools to crumble and decay across the state.

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.

Quote attributable to Minister for Education James Merlino:

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

Quote attributable to the Member for Bellarine Lisa Neville

“We’ve building and upgrading more than 1,300 schools across the state over the past four years and only Labor will keep delivering for Victorian families.”
