Delivering A Great Local School For Mount Clear

17 September 2018

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

Labor will invest $5.5 million to transform tired old classrooms and facilities with a major upgrade of Block A, which houses the school’s art, music, drama, and science 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 invested more than $5.4 million to build a new central technology hub at Mount Clear College.

This state of the art new centre will include spaces for home economics, metal and woodwork, vocational education and training, manufacturing and art.

There’s more work to do and only Labor will deliver the state of the art facilities students and staff at Mount Clear College 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.
