Investing in Local Schools

The Andrews Government understands the importance of education and maintains a proud record of investing in local schools.

Delivering on our election commitment, Williamstown High School received $500,000 towards the construction of a new Performing Arts Centre of Excellence, while Bayside College has received $300,000 to upgrade the technical wing at the Williamstown campus.

These investments formed part of the first Andrews budget, and we’ve continued the proud Labor record of supporting our local schools in successive budgets.

Newport Lakes Primary School received $3 million in the 2016/17 State Budget to upgrade its ageing facilities, and Spotswood Primary School has been awarded $1.4 million in the 2017/18 Budget for vital repairs and upgrades of school facilities.

The Andrews Government is delivering the quality classrooms our kids deserve. It’s all part of the plan to make Victoria the Education State.
