Constituency Question: Craigieburn South Secondary College

Ms SPENCE (Yuroke) (12:53:53) — (14 268) My constituency question is to the Minister for Education. Craigieburn residents are thrilled with the announcement of $24 million for the new Craigieburn South secondary college. My question is: what is the time line for the delivery of this new school?

With significant population growth in the Yuroke electorate, local families have expressed a strong desire for an additional secondary school to both ensure that our schools can continue to provide a great learning environment and deliver more options for students. This investment shows that the Labor government listens and is delivering on what is important to residents in my community. This approach is in stark contrast to the Liberals, who did not plan for a single new school in the Yuroke electorate in the previous term, despite knowing that growth was only going to continue in the coming years. I know that residents are very keen to hear more about this fantastic local investment and would greatly appreciate any further information that the minister can provide.
