Delivering A Great Local School For Skye

18 July 2018

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

Labor will invest $7.8 million to build a new indoor gym with competition-grade basketball and netball court as well as a major refurbishment of the school’s learning and administration areas.

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 Skye.

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

Only Labor will deliver the state of the art facilities students and staff at Skye 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.
