maintenance win for Lancefield Primary

Labor Member for Macedon, Mary-Anne Thomas, was thrilled to announce that much needed maintenance funding has been allocated for the Lancefield Primary School’s heritage-listed administration building.

“During last year’s election campaign, the Principal of Lancefield Primary School and school council raised ongoing concerns with me about much needed roof repairs,” Ms Thomas said.

“As soon as I was elected, I made it a priority to visit the school and write to the Minister about the school’s maintenance woes which had been ignored over two years under the previous Liberal government”.

“With the Andrews Government’s record $3.3 billion investment in education – the single biggest of additional funding in Victoria’s history – I’m pleased to see that government schools are getting the support they so desperately need”.

Maintenance grants totaling $715,000 has been allocated to government schools across Macedon for the 2015 – 2016 year.

This is in addition to the $23.5 million allocated to upgrade and rebuild schools in Daylesford and Kyneton.

“This funding is all part of the Andrews Government’s commitment to making Victoria the Education State, which begins right here in Macedon”.

“We want to ensure that every child, student and adult learner in Macedon gets a great education and the promise of a bright future.”

“Teachers must have the right tools to deliver a first-class education for their students. This funding will help achieve that objective,” Ms Thomas said.
