Creating New Outdoor Learning Spaces for Glen Eira College

A Shorten Labor Government will invest $100,000 towards new, world-class outdoor learning areas at Glen Eira College.

This election is a choice between a Shorten Labor Government with a plan for the infrastructure our community needs, or more cuts and chaos from the Liberals.

Glen Eira College has experienced significant growth in its enrolments, putting its limited play and learning spaces under pressure.

The Andrews Government funded a redevelopment of the school, including the refurbishment and extension of school buildings, and a new arts and technology hub.

Federal Labor’s investment will create outdoor spaces attached to the College’s two science and research labs, and provide students with the best opportunities to learn, in a modern, collaborative learning environment. 

“Today’s announcement is in addition to the $950,000 of additional funding Glen Eira College will receive under a Shorten Labor Government,” Shadow Assistant Minister for Schools, Andrew Giles, said.

“Local schools in Macnamara will receive an extra $11 million over the first three years of a Shorten Labor Government.

“Only 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 Abbott-Turnbull-Morrison Government, which has cut millions from public education including our schools, TAFE and universities. Only a vote for Labor will change the government and deliver real change for students,” said Labor’s Candidate for Macnamara, Josh Burns. 

“This funding comes on top of the commitment to redevelop the College in 2014 made when I was Labor’s candidate for Caulfield, which I was so proud to make. 

“A Shorten Labor Government will deliver to every 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 university. 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.
