Ged Kearney MP and a Shorten Labor Government will deliver $1 million towards performing arts and library facilities for Preston High School.
This election will be a choice between a Shorten Labor Government which will build the schools our students need, and more of the Liberal’s cuts and chaos.
Ged Kearney MP congratulated the local community who campaigned long and hard for a new school in Melbourne’s booming northern suburbs.
“The positivity and pride that surrounds this school is palpable. This school is a testament to what it means to truly value public education and community,” Ms Kearney said.
The Deputy Federal Labor Leader, Tanya Plibersek, said the extra funding will go towards state-of-the-art library and performing arts facilities.
“Ged is a fierce advocate for her community, and I know how much this funding will mean to Preston High,” Ms Plibersek said.
The funding is on top of $18 million for public schools in Cooper that an elected Shorten Labor Government will deliver.
Every student in every public school in Cooper will be better off under Labor’s plan.
“This boost in funding can be used to deliver additional supports like speech pathologists, social workers and family liaison officers as well as smaller class sizes, more teachers and more one-to-one attention” Ms Kearney said.
Labor will deliver record investment in our schools because every child, in every school, deserves the best possible education.
