Delivering A Great Local School For Armstrong Creek

09 October 2018

Armstrong Creek families will get the world-class local school their kids deserve, with a re-elected Andrews Labor Government to deliver a new secondary school in Armstrong Creek.

Labor will invest $34.5 million to build the new secondary school as part of the Armstrong Creek Education Precinct. This builds on the $3.9 million already provided by the Andrews Labor Government for the design and early works of the new school.

Oberon High School will relocate to the new site, located next to the existing primary and special school, and open in 2021.

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

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.
