 Ms Sandell to ask the Minister for Education— what is the timeline for upgrades to Carlton Primary School and will that upgrade meet the Government's commitment of $10 million in this term of government.

 

ANSWER:

I am informed as follows:

The Andrews Government has a strong and ambitious agenda to grow educational opportunity for all Victorians. We understand that education is the window of opportunity for people as well as a key driver of economic success and prosperity for our state. Our immediate priority is to progress the election commitments in our portfolios-in particular our promise to provide $530 million to upgrade and build new schools, $50 million to build new and refurbish existing kindergartens, and $320 million to support TAFEs. We also plan to establish 10 new Tech Schools across the state for students in Years 7 to 12.

The Victorian Government has committed $10 million to Carlton Primary School to deliver new classrooms and facilities and to make the school a demonstration centre of early and primary education.

The Department will work with the school to plan and deliver the project, ensuring the best outcome for the school and local community. In the meantime, the school is encouraged to maintain its facilities as usual, using funds allocated annually through the Student Resource Package.
