Students at Parkdale Primary School

Investment $924 million

As a result of chronic underinvestment in recent years, our schools are overcrowded and run down. Without additional investment a large and growing number of students will be forced to attend schools that are operating well beyond their enrolment capacity.

What will the money be used for?

This investment includes:

Upgrades to schools

$385 million for upgrades to schools in poor condition. 

Construct new schools

$287 million to construct new schools and buy land, including many in growth areas.

Establish Tech Schools

$92 million to establish Tech Schools in the Ballarat, Banyule, Bendigo, Casey, Geelong, Gippsland, Monash, Whittlesea, Wyndham and Yarra Ranges regions.

Relocatable classrooms

$63.6 million for relocatable classrooms to alleviate immediate pressure in overcrowded schools.

Create community hubs

$50 million to create community hubs in growth areas to enable greater use of school assets outside of school hours.

Remove asbestos

A further $28 million to remove asbestos in schools.

Schools in disadvantaged areas

$18 million for up to 100 secondary schools in disadvantaged areas across Victoria to deliver purpose-built consultation rooms for general practitioner doctors services.
