Delivering A Great Local School For Newcomb

08 October 2018

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

Labor will invest $3.2 million to refurbish and modernise classrooms and facilities in poor condition. These works will target facilities that need it most, ensuring that students learn in an environment designed for delivering modern education.

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 Newcomb.

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.

“Newcomb Park Primary School is a great school and only Labor will deliver this massive upgrade to give students and staff the state of the art facilities they deserve.”
