Create a new learning space at Port Melbourne Primary

A Shorten Labor Government will commit $50,000 towards a new learning space for Port Melbourne Primary School, providing students with the best opportunities to learn in a modern, fit-for-purpose classroom.

Port Melbourne Primary School has experienced significant growth in its enrolments, putting its limited play and learning spaces under pressure.

And a Shorten Labor Government, in partnership with the Victorian Government, will rehome a retired tram to the school, and transform it into an iconic multipurpose learning and play space. 

Moreover, if a Shorten Labor Government is elected, Port Melbourne Primary School will receive an extra $810,000 funding, and local schools in Macnamara will receive an extra $11 million over the first three years.

Federal Labor is committed to reversing the Morrison Government’s $14 billion cuts to public schools, so that every kid has the best start in life. 

Quotes attributable to Josh Burns, Labor candidate for Macnamara:

“Australia deserves better than the current Liberal government, which is hopelessly divided on the issues that matter. Schools like Port Melbourne Primary need a progressive government that gets things done. We need a Shorten Labor Government for fairness in Australia. 

“Port Melbourne’s history is interwoven with Melbourne’s first trams, and it’s only fitting to rehome a retired tram to Port Melbourne Primary. This iconic classroom will not only provide necessary learning spaces for its growing community, it’ll also engage these students with a better connection to place and sense of identity.”

This election is a choice between Labor’s plan for better hospitals and better schools, or bigger tax loopholes for the top end of town under the Liberals.

After six years of Liberal cuts and chaos, our united Labor team is ready.
