PROPER FUNDING FOR OUR STATE SCHOOLS

During the 2018 election campaign, roughly $7 million was committed to schools in Brunswick. Together, we can make sure the government delivers on this funding.

The Brunswick electorate is home to 11 unique and inspiring public schools. When I visited each of these schools early in 2019 I met dedicated staff, passionate parents and hard working children.

Housed in 100-year-old buildings, maintenance has become almost impossible with inadequate State Government funding.

‘Walking around the schools I saw leaking roofs, flooding, asbestos, windows that don’t open, peeling lead paint and a lack of facilities, forcing staff to use toilets in a neighbouring home.’

A good government would fund school maintenance appropriately because every child deserves to go to school with facilities that are up to scratch.

With our community, I’m calling for emergency maintenance funding and together, we’ll keep up the pressure to ensure our schools are adequately funded.

We all want to see better school facilities for Brunswick children.

PROPER FUNDING FOR OUR STATE SCHOOLS

TAKE ACTION

Our local state schools are in disrepair – with leaking roofs, flooding, asbestos, windows that don’t open, peeling lead paint and a lack of facilities, forcing staff to use toilets in neighbouring homes.

We're calling for emergency maintenance funding for our local state schools.
