DELIVERING A GREAT LOCAL SCHOOL FOR UPWEY
Upwey families will get the world-class local school their kids deserve, with a re-elected Andrews Labor Government to deliver a further upgrade to Upwey High School.
Labor will invest $2.7 million to transform the school’s tired facilities into the modern learning environments students and staff need to achieve their best. This builds on the $24 million already provided by the Andrews Labor Government to upgrade the school.
Every child should have a good local school and the chance to succeed in life, and only a re-elected Labor Government will deliver that for kids in Upwey.
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 has 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.
