Constituency Question: New Schools

Ms SPENCE (Yuroke): My constituency question is to the Minister for Education. What information can the minister provide on planning for the next stage of the Andrews Labor government’s commitment to deliver 100 new schools? Prior to the last election, the government committed to opening six new schools in the Yuroke electorate, including new primary schools in Craigieburn, Mickleham, Kalkallo and Greenvale and new secondary schools in Craigieburn and Greenvale. Earlier this year, I was pleased to join the minister for the opening of the first of these new schools—Aitken Hill Primary School. Along with Yuroke residents, I am excited to see new facilities take shape at these new schools. With 47 of the 100 new schools already announced, many families living in the rapidly growing northern part of my electorate are very interested in hearing about the government’s plans for the next stage of this package and in particular the potential for a secondary school for families living in the Mickleham area. I thank the minister for all the work he has done and I look forward to sharing his response with my community.
