Daniel Andrews has lost control of population growth and it’s putting enormous pressure on our schools.
That is why an elected Liberal Nationals Government will invest $1 million to upgrade St Paul the Apostle South Primary School, Endeavour Hills and refurbish the administration facilities and associated areas.
This announcement follows the Liberal Nationals commitment of $400 million for capital upgrades for non-government schools.
The Liberal Nationals support a strong public and private education system because we believe in giving parents choice and children the best opportunities.
A critically important part of that choice is for parents to have the option of low-fee, independent and Catholic schools.
With the current population squeeze limiting parental choices it’s never been more important to support all three sectors of our school system.
Our announcement of $1million for St Paul the Apostle South Primary School, Endeavour Hills is a vital investment in this growing area of Melbourne.
Comments attributable to Shadow Minister for Education, Tim Smith:
“We want to work with non-government schools to give all Victorian families choice in education.
I am delighted to be able to announce this $1 million investment in St Paul the Apostle South Primary School, Endeavour Hills as part of our $400 million commitment to non-government schools.
Only the Liberal Nationals have a plan to get back in control of the population squeeze and give parent’s the choice and children the best opportunities in their education.”
Comments attributable to Liberal Candidate for Narre Warren North, Vikki Fitzgerald:
“I am thrilled to be able to offer support to non-government schools in our area, so families have more choice on the best education for their children.
Gone are the days when you sent all your children to the same local school for convenience. One school may not suit all children in a family.
It is important that a government offers parents multiple options, so they can make the best choice based on the individual needs of each child.
St Paul the Apostle South Primary is a wonderful school that will greatly benefit from this upgrade which will provide modern and contemporary facilities for both students and teachers.”
