An elected Liberal Nationals Government will deliver $3 million to upgrade Neerim District Secondary College.
The College has remained largely unchanged since its establishment in 1963 and the commitment will allow the school to upgrade a range of classrooms and modernise the learning environment to achieve the best outcome possible for students.
A new Science and Technology Learning Centre, named after former Member for Narracan John Delzoppo OAM, was funded by the Baillieu Government in 2013 and this commitment will build on that investment.
Only a Liberal Nationals Government will support Neerim District Secondary College and modernise the facility to meet the future needs of local students.
Comments attributable to Shadow Minister for Education, Tim Smith:
“Daniel Andrews and his Melbourne centric government has completely ignored rural and regional Victoria.
Education Minister James Merlino, who is also Minister for Emergency Services, has spent more time smashing up the CFA then delivering for regional students and school communities.
We will ensure regional school communities receive the attention they deserve and this announcement today is just one small step towards a better future for regional schools.
Only a Liberal Nationals Government is committed to governing for all Victorians not just in the City.”
Comments attributable to Member for Narracan, Gary Blackwood:
“Students and teachers deserve the best facilities we can offer them and this commitment today will provide investment that will enhance the high quality of education currently being delivered.
Most of the buildings at Neerim District Secondary College reflect the era of the 1960’s and the time has come to provide significant investment to modernise the facilities.
I’ve worked tirelessly with the school to secure this commitment and I’m proud a Matthew Guy led Liberal Nationals Government will deliver this commitment for my local community.”
