DELIVERING A GREAT LOCAL SCHOOL FOR DIAMOND CREEK

Diamond Creek families will get the world-class local school their kids deserve, with a re-elected Andrews Labor Government to upgrade Diamond Valley College.

Labor will invest $3.1 million to transform the school’s tired old classrooms and facilities into the modern learning environments students and staff need to achieve their best.

This builds on the $3.8 million already provided by the Andrews Labor Government to upgrade the school.

The Liberals slashed $1 billion out of our education system, leaving schools to crumble and decay across the state.

In contrast, the Labor Government has invested more than $3.8 billion to build 70 new schools and upgrade 1,300 schools across the state since coming to office four years ago.

That means thousands of Victorian kids now go to school every day and learn in new classrooms with better technology and facilities, like new gyms and science labs.

It has also helped create more than 5000 construction jobs for Victorians right around our state.

A re-elected Labor Government will keep delivering for Victorians with more new schools and upgrades to existing schools across the state.

“Diamond Valley College is a great local school community and it deserves facilities that match. Only Labor can be trusted to deliver the facilities that students and staff need.”

“Architects have recently been appointed to design an upgrade of science facilities which is in addition to the new facilities officially opened today. A re-elected Andrews Labor Government will ensure that we continue to upgrade this great school.”
