A Shorten Labor Government will invest over $90,000 towards improving the learning environment in several local public schools.
This election is a choice between a Shorten Labor Government with a plan for schools, or more cuts and chaos from the Liberals.
In the Federal electorate of Lalor, if elected a Shorten Labor Government will deliver:
- $20,500 towards iPads at Mossfiel Primary School;
- $7,669 towards cooking facilities at Woodville Primary School;
- $19,478 towards musical instruments at Featherbrook P-9 College;
- $19,979 towards a robotics kit and iPads at Wyndham Vale Primary School;
- $23,000 towards a learning support centre at Tarneit Senior College.
This commitment is on top of the extra $31 million for schools in Lalor over the first three years of a Shorten Labor Government.
“As a former teacher and principal, I know that in order for students to reach their full potential in the classroom, schools need funding to provide the necessary equipment and facilities.”
“Whether it be developing healthy eating practices in a weekly cooking program or having access to an iPad to develop digital literacy, students attending our local public schools deserve every opportunity to learn.”
At Mossfiel Primary School, students will have access to a class set of iPads which will help to ease the financial burden on families.
Cooking facilities at Woodville Primary School will provide students with the opportunity to learn how to prepare nutritious and healthy meals which is important for their development.
Students at Featherbrook P-9 College will have access to a range of musical instruments while students at Wyndham Vale Primary School will have access to a Robotics Kit and iPads so they can practice their coding and STEM skills.
At Tarneit Senior College, a learning support centre will directly support students with a disability reach their learning outcomes.
Labor sees properly funding our schools and providing opportunities for students to learn as an investment in our collective future.
And unlike the Liberals, Labor can afford to make investments in our local public schools, because we are not giving tax loopholes to the top end of town.
