$5 million upgrade for Scoresby Secondary College

Liberal Nationals to upgrade Scoresby Secondary College

A Liberal Nationals Government will commit $5 million to upgrade facilities at Scoresby Secondary College.

With more than 230 students and families at Scoresby and an overwhelming growth in Year 7 enrolments, there is a huge demand for better educational facilities in Knox.

This $5 million upgrade will dramatically improve classrooms and other educational buildings at Scoresby Secondary College.

For far too long, Knox schools have been overlooked by the Labor Government, leaving schools like Scoresby with poorly maintained buildings that are in desperate need of upgrades.

Parents want to send their children to decent, safe, well-maintained schools, and students deserve to be able to go to a local school nearby, without compromising their educational choices.

Comments attributable to Shadow Minister for Education, Tim Smith:

“Scoresby Secondary College has achieved some outstanding academic results and have a strong and supportive school culture.

The Liberal Nationals are committed to redeveloping Scoresby Secondary College and give local students every chance they need to pursue a quality education.”

Comments attributable to Member for Rowville, Kim Wells:

“Parents in the Knox community are keen to see their children have the best education possible and they should be able to send their children to a quality school in their local area.

The Andrews Labor Government has ignored schools in the Rowville electorate for four long years. This funding commitment means that students will now be able to enjoy the facilities they deserve.”

Comments attributable to Member for Ferntree Gully, Nick Wakeling:

“Scoresby Secondary College has supported some high achieving students, with a strong teaching focus, and whose staff work incredibly hard.

This upgrade will ensure that Scoresby Secondary College has good quality classrooms and educational facilities for Knox students for years to come.”
