Minister for Education questioned on how much capital Funding Rowville schools will get

Mr WELLS (Rowville) (11:58:48) — (14 499) The question I wish to raise is for the Minister for Education. Minister, how much capital funding was there for each school in the Rowville electorate in the 2018–19 Victorian state budget, because when I looked in the budget papers, I could not find one cent? Minister, education is vitally important to parents in the Rowville electorate. The quality of the educational facilities that local students can access in their own area plays a big role in where parents choose to send their children. Good quality, well-resourced and maintained local schools give students and parents greater choice and access to affordable public education close to home. It is well known that students from Rowville frequently travel to schools in Glen Waverley and elsewhere to pursue education at larger, more high-profile schools. The demand on these schools is enormous and growing with population growth in the outer eastern suburbs.
