Macleod families will get the world-class local school their kids deserve, with a re-elected Andrews Labor Government to deliver a massive upgrade to Macleod College.
Labor will invest $4.9 million to upgrade Block A, which houses the science and counselling rooms. These tired old classrooms and facilities will be transformed to give students and staff the state of the art facilities they need to achieve their best.
In addition to this first stage of works, the school will also work with the Victorian School Building Authority to plan for future stages.
The Liberals slashed $1 billion out of our education system and left schools to crumble and decay across the state.
Only Labor will deliver the state of the art facilities students and staff at Macleod College deserve.
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.
