Daniel Andrews has lost control of population and it’s putting enormous pressure on our schools.
That is why an elected Liberal Nationals Government will invest $5.5 million to upgrade St Peter’s College, East Cranbourne Campus and construct a Performing Arts Centre including a theatrette, general learning areas, specialist 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 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.
Our announcement of $5.5 million for St Peter’s College, East Cranbourne Campus 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 $5.5 million investment in St Peter’s College, East Cranbourne Campus 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 Cranbourne, Ann-Marie Hermans:
“In one of the fastest growing areas of Cranbourne East, students from St Peter’s College will greatly benefit from modern and contemporary facilities.
St Peter’s College is a wonderful school and this upgrade will not only help students achieve great educational outcomes but will also be a fantastic facility for the local community.”
