Labor’s $10 million pledge will upgrade the school and build new classrooms, specialist facilities and amenities.
As schools resume for 2013, the State Opposition is ramping up the pressure on the Baillieu Government over its cuts to education inVictoria.
State Member for Brunswick Jane Garrett said parents sending their children back to school were feeling the impact of two years of savage cuts to education in Victoria.
Students will suffer from the Baillieu Government’s multi-million dollar cut to TAFE and vocational training with possible course cuts, staff losses and escalating fees, State Member for Brunswick, Jane Garrett MP said today.
Jane Garrett said local students were already under pressure with end of year exams and deciding what studies they will do next year without having to worry about if they can get into a course or have to pay higher than expected fees.
State Member for Brunswick, Jane Garrett MP has encouraged students to get involved in the 2011 Premiers’ Reading Challenge.
“Seven years after it was initiated by the then Premier Steve Bracks, it’s encouraging to see the Premiers’ Reading Challenge is still going strongly,” Jane Garrett said.
