LABOR INVESTS OVER $160,000 TOWARDS UPGRADING EQUIPMENT AND FACILITIES IN LOCAL PUBLIC SCHOOLS

 

A Shorten Labor Government will invest over $160,000 towards improving the learning environment in several local public schools. 

 

This election is a choice between a Shorten Labor Government with a plan for schools, or more cuts and chaos from the Liberals.

 

In the Federal electorate of Werriwa, if elected a Shorten Labor Government will deliver:

 

  • $20,000 towards an outdoor learning area at Heckenberg Public School
  • $20,000 towards shade sails at Bardia Public School
  • $20,000 towards specialised exercise equipment at Campbell House School
  • $26,000 towards an outdoor learning area at Cartwright Public School
  • $25,000 towards an outdoor area at James Busby High School
  • $50,000 towards a new play area at Prestons Public School

 

This commitment is on top of the extra $25 million for schools in Werriwa over the first three years of a Shorten Labor Government.

 

“I attended public schools in Werriwa, and so did my children. I know that in order for students to reach their full potential in the classroom, schools need funding to provide the necessary equipment and facilities.”

 

“Whether it is developing increased outdoor exercise, or special-needs specific play equipment, students attending our local public schools deserve every opportunity to learn.”

 

Labor sees properly funding our schools and providing opportunities for students to learn as an investment in our collective future.

 

And unlike the Liberals, Labor can afford to make investments in our local public schools, because we are not giving tax loopholes to the top end of town.
