Adjournment: Craigieburn South Secondary College

Ms SPENCE (Yuroke) (19:15:22) — (14 184) My adjournment matter is for the Minister for Education, and the action I seek is for the minister to fund the construction of Craigieburn South secondary college. The Andrews Labor government provided funds to acquire land for this important future school in the 2017–18 budget, which will complement our great existing government secondary schools, build on the government’s outstanding record of new local schools in my community and provide access to secondary education close to home for young people in the growing areas in the south of Craigieburn. With the process of land acquisition now well underway, this is the ideal time to begin work on building this new school and further improve access to quality education for residents of my electorate. I hope the minister will favourably consider this request.
