LABOR’S FAIR GO FOR SCHOOLS MEANS $60 MILLION IN ADDITIONAL FUNDING FOR ILLAWARRA AND SHOALHAVEN SCHOOLS

A Shorten Labor Government will deliver the biggest investment in public schools in Australian history, so every child in every school gets the education they deserve.

Schools in our community will receive over $60 million over the first three years from 2020 – because the things that make a difference in Illawarra and Shoalhaven schools, like individual attention and excellent teaching, require more funding.

Over the last five years the Liberals have attacked public schools and slashed their funding. They’ve let down the 2.5 million kids who go to public schools.

Bill Shorten and Labor will full reverse Scott Morrison’s cuts and invest record funding – so every school can be a great school.

Recently, Labor announced that a Shorten Labor Government will invest an extra $14 billion in public schools – to deliver the biggest investment in public schools in Australian history.

That means that school like:

  • Wollongong High School of the Performing Arts in Cunningham will receive about $1.35 million and over the first three years alone. The total amount of additional funding for Cunningham schools is $18,290,000.
  • Vincentia High School in Gilmore will receive about $1.65 million and over the first three years alone. The total amount of additional funding for Gilmore schools is $21,610,000.
  • Warilla High School in Whitlam will receive about $1.54 million and over the first three years alone. The total amount of additional funding for Whitlam schools is $21,430,000.

 

That's $61,330,000 for Schools between Helensburgh in the North and Moruya in the South.

This will make a huge difference in our community. It will mean every child, in every school will get a great education – because the things that make a difference in our schools, like individual attention and excellent teaching, require more funding.

Bill Shorten and Labor will reverse the Liberals’ cuts to our schools – so every school can be a great school
