Delivering A Great Local School For St Kilda

12 September 2018

St Kilda families will get the world-class local school their kids deserve, with a re-elected Andrews Labor Government to deliver another major upgrade to St Kilda Primary School.

A re-elected Labor Government will provide $5 million to the school to demolish the old classroom block on the Chapel Street side of the school and for it to be replaced with brand new classrooms.

Every child should have a good local school and the chance to succeed in life, and only a re-elected Labor Government will deliver that for kids in St Kilda.

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

The Labor Government has already invested $5.46 million for the construction of a multi-story education facility on the Brighton Road side of the school, but there’s more work to do and only Labor will deliver the state of the art facilities students and staff at St Kilda Primary School 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.
