Daniel Andrews has lost control of population and it’s putting enormous pressure on our schools.
That’s why an elected Liberal Nationals Government will invest $1.5 million to convert and upgrade St Ambrose School’s teaching and learning facilities to provide additional learning spaces.
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 parent’s 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.
The Liberal National believe the only way to get back in control of population growth is to decentralise our State, ensuring key services are readily available for families in regional Victoria.
Our announcement of $1.5 million for St Ambrose School, Woodend, is a vital investment in this growing region of our State.
Comments attributable to Leader of the Opposition, Matthew Guy:
“Daniel Andrews has lost control of population growth which is placing enormous strain on our school system.
I will get back in control of education by building the schools and classrooms we need whether they be Catholic, independent or government schools.”
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 $1.5 million investment in St Ambrose School as part of our $400 million commitment to non-government schools.”
Comments attributable to Liberal Candidate for Macedon, Amanda Millar:
‘Today’s announcement by Matthew Guy means this school will be able to convert and upgrade some of its existing teaching and learning areas to increase capacity in the school.
This is a critical investment that students and the St Ambrose School community will benefit from in the years to come.’
