Families in Yuroke are one step closer to accessing local education with the recruitment process now underway to select one of Victoria’s brightest and best principals to lead Craigieburn South Secondary College.

Member for Yuroke Ros Spence MP today announced the commencement of the recruitment drive to appoint a principal to the new school in Craigieburn which is currently under construction and will open in 2020.

The Department of Education and Training has advertised for educators across the state to apply to lead one of the new schools.

New schools will open next year in Ballarat, Casey, Greater Dandenong, Greater Geelong, Hume, Mitchell and Wyndham.

These new schools are part of the Labor Government’s school building boom that will see 100 new government schools open over the next eight years.

The Labor Government has invested more than $3.8 billion to deliver new schools and more than 1,300 school upgrades, supporting more than 5,000 construction jobs for Victorians.

The Labor Government is ensuring every child has a great local school and a great start in life.
