Supporting Local Primary Schools
As your local Member in State Parliament, ensuring your kids have access to high quality education is one of my top priorities. We’re extremely proud to have been able to deliver real improvements to primary schools in the local area.
We’ve made available $6.3 million to Strathmore Primary School in order to rebuild administration facilities and refurbish classrooms and staff areas.
We’re delivering $450,000 to Flemington Primary School for safety improvements in the school pick up and drop off zone.
In addition, we’ve also provided nearly $2 million Ascot Vale Primary School, over half a million dollars to Moonee Ponds West, and $411,000 to Essendon North Primary School.
And to top it all off, with our $882 million Budget commitment, every three-year-old in the electorate will have access to at least five hours per week of subsidised kinder by 2022 – an amount that’s set to ramp up to 15 hours per week by 2029.
Our local schools are important to me, and I’m proud to be supporting them in Parliament.
