Delivering A Great Local School For Bellbrae

19 July 2018

Bellbrae families will get the world-class local school their kids deserve with a re-elected Andrews Labor Government to deliver a massive upgrade to Bellbrae Primary School.

Labor will invest more than $9.1 million to build a new competition grade gym, upgrade the school oval, build new open learning spaces and science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) facilities.

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

The Andrews Labor Government has already delivered $1 million to upgrade and modernise facilities at Bellbrae Primary School, with design work currently underway.

There’s more work to do and only Labor will deliver the state of the art facilities students and staff at Bellbrae Primary School need to achieve their best with new STEM and sporting facilities.

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.
