DELIVERING A GREAT LOCAL SCHOOL FOR MONBULK

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

Labor will invest $9.3 million for the final major stage of the school’s masterplan, which includes a brand new STEM and trades building and a new home economics building.

This builds on the $19.1 million already provided by the Andrews Labor Government to upgrade the school.

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

In contrast, 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 more than 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.
