Build a new playground at Ripponlea Primary

A Shorten Labor Government will invest $43,186 towards a much-needed new playground at Ripponlea Primary School.

Ripponlea Primary School’s playground is run-down and no longer fit for purpose.

A well-designed, modern playground is critically important for our young kids, supporting the ordinary development of physical and social skills.

That’s why a Shorten Labor Government will invest $43,186 towards a playground at Ripponlea Primary School.

Labor’s investment will support the installation of new playground equipment for the students to use during break times, and provide students with the best opportunities for play.

Moreover, under a Shorten Labor Government, Ripponlea Primary School will receive an extra $290,000 funding boost compared to the Liberals, and local schools in Macnamara will receive an extra $11 million over the first three years.

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. 

Josh Burns, Labor’s candidate for Macnamara, said, “Australia deserves better than the Morrison Government – we can be more ambitious, and elect a government that gets things done. Only a vote for Labor will change the government, and deliver world-class education for our kids.

“We’ll deliver every school the funding it needs, two years of subsidised pre-school 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.
