Daniel Andrews has lost control of population growth and it’s putting enormous pressure on our schools.
That’s why an elected Liberal Nationals Government will commit over $1.3 million to build a VCE Centre at Gleneagles Secondary College.
The school will have an enrolment of over 1400 students in 2019, with one third of classes being held in portable classrooms.
This funding will create a dedicated space for VCE students, encompassing study areas, a kitchenette, careers centre, multipurpose space and toilet facilities.
These new facilities will create a state of the art learning environment for academic education and provide more classrooms to ensure local schools can keep up with population growth.
Only the Liberal Nationals will get back in control of population and ensure students have the 21st century facilities they deserve.
Comments attributable to Shadow Minister for Education, Tim Smith:
“Out of control population growth caused by the Andrews Labor Government’s lack of planning is placing enormous pressure on our schools.
The Liberal Nationals have a plan to get back in control of education and ease the population squeeze.
The students, teachers and families of Gleneagles Secondary College deserve modern facilities and only a Liberal Nationals Government will make this happen.”
Comments attributable to Liberal Candidate for Narre Warren North, Vikki Fitzgerald:
“Gleneagles Secondary College is a school of choice for many families in and around the greater Endeavour Hills area.
The school was originally built as a Year 7-10 campus, so facilities for senior students were not a priority in the original design. Portables are currently housing one third of all students in the school.
The students at Gleneagles Secondary College will greatly benefit from this VCE Centre as it will provide modern and contemporary facilities to nurture positive learning outcomes and great educational results.”
