Regional school tour

Victorian Coalition education spokesman Nick Wakeling is touring schools across the region this week as part of an assessment into the degree of need for government support and funding.

Mr Wakeling will join Member for Lowan Emma Kealy who is strongly advocating for greater government investment into schools in her electorate.

They will discuss circumstances, such as a ‘desperate need for infrastructure funding and other areas where support is needed’ with various school principals.

“I’m grateful for the time the Shadow Education Minister is giving to allow me and our school principals the opportunity to highlight the fantastic education opportunities and services being delivered locally,” Ms Kealy said.

Ms Kealy is calling on the Labor Government to match a Coalition pre-election commitment to provide a ‘better quality learning environment for students as well as better facilities for teachers’.

“I’ve previously raised funding concerns for key education projects with the Minister for Education James Merlino. These projects included $1.2-million to refurbish Dimboola Secondary College, $8-million for a new education precinct in Warracknabeal and $2-million to refurbish and rebuild parts of Baimbridge College in Hamilton,” Ms Kealy said.
