Delivering A Great Local School For Churchill

15 August 2018

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

Labor will invest more than $2.6 million to demolish Block A, which is the school’s main teaching and administration block.

Its tired old classrooms and office space will be replaced by a new modern building with the state of the art classrooms and facilities students and staff need to achieve their best.

The Liberals didn’t spend a single cent on Churchill Primary School and slashed $1 billion out of our education system, leaving schools to crumble and decay across the state.

The Labor Government has already delivered almost $300,000 in upgrades to Churchill Primary School, including new synthetic outdoor courts.

There’s still more to do and only Labor will deliver the modern facilities students and staff 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.

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