An elected Liberal Nationals Government will provide $1.1 million to upgrade and refurbish general learning, break-out spaces and associated areas at St John’s Primary School, Frankston East.
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 parents 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 $1.1 million for St John’s Primary School is a vital investment in this growing suburb of Melbourne.
Comments attributable to Shadow Minister for Education, Tim Smith:
“I am delighted to be able to announce this $1.1 million investment in St John’s Primary School, Frankston East, as part of our $400 million commitment to non-government schools.
Only the Liberal Nationals will give the students and teachers at St John’s Primary School the modern facilities they deserve.”
Comments attributable to Liberal Candidate for Frankston, Michael Lamb
“In one of the fastest growing areas of Frankston, students from St John’s Primary School will greatly benefit from modern and contemporary facilities.
St John’s is a wonderful school and I am pleased that this upgrade will help students achieve great educational outcomes.”
