A Shorten Labor Government will invest $100,000 towards the Albert Park College STEM Centre.
Albert Park College, a secondary school in Macnamara, has experienced significant growth in enrolments, putting pressure on facilities.
Federal Labor’s investment will help develop an interactive open plan learning hub, featuring specialised learning labs and break out zones with specialist equipment, including 3D printers. Students at Albert Park College will have access to cutting-edge facilities to pursue their curiosity and advance their STEM education in a modern, collaborative learning environment.
Under a Shorten Labor Government, Albert Park College will receive an extra $1.14 million funding, and local schools in Macnamara will receive an extra $11 million over the first three years.
Federal Labor will reverse the Morrison Government’s $14 billion cuts to public schools, so that every kid has the best start in life.
“Australia deserves better than the current Government which has cut millions from public education including our schools, TAFE and universities,” said Mr Burns, Labor candidate for Macnamara.
“Only a vote for Labor will change the government and deliver real change for students.
“A Shorten Labor Government will deliver to every public school the funding needed, two years of subsidised preschool education for every child, and boost university funding to give around 200,000 more Australians the chance to go to uni.
“Australia needs a progressive government to give our kids the best start in life.”
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.
