Delivering A Great Local School For Glenroy

07 October 2018

Glenroy families will get the world-class local school their kids deserve, with a re-elected Andrews Labor Government to deliver a massive upgrade to Glenroy Secondary College.

Labor will invest $9.2 million to transform tired old classrooms and facilities with a major upgrade to Block A, Block F and Block G. These buildings currently house facilities for administration, art and craft, home economic, and general purpose classrooms.

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 Glenroy.

The Liberals slashed $1 billion out of our education system, leaving 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.
