Families in the Yuroke electorate will have access to the world-class local schools their kids deserve, with a re-elected Andrews Labor Government to open 10 new schools in the area over the next four years.

Victoria is growing and we need to plan ahead to make sure that every child has access to a great local school.

As part of the $850 million investment to be delivered by a re-elected Labor Government, six new schools will now be fully funded in the Yuroke electorate. These include:

  • Aitken Hill Primary School, opening 2019
  • Craigieburn South Secondary School, opening 2020
  • Greenvale North West Primary School, opening 2021
  • Merrifield West Primary School, opening 2021
  • Greenvale Secondary School – Barrymore Road site opening 2022
  • Kalkallo Common Primary School, opening 2022

Across the state, investment from a re-elected Labor Government will see 45 schools open within the next four years.

A special planning fund for another 55 schools will also be established, which will ensure families can have confidence that Victoria’s education system is well prepared as the state grows.

Every child should have a good local school and the chance to succeed in life, and only a re-elected Labor Government will deliver that for kids across our outer suburbs.
