Liberals to rebuild Mount Waverley Secondary College

The Victorian Liberals are committed to ensuring our schools receive the very best educational facilities in our suburbs to ease the local population squeeze.

That’s why a Victorian Liberal Government will commit $8 million towards stage two of the Mount Waverley Secondary College rebuild project.

Mount Waverley Secondary College has around 1,800 students who use the school each day across two campuses. The facilities at the senior campus are in poor condition and are continually outlined in maintenance audit reports year after year.

Despite the lack of modern facilities, Mount Waverley Secondary College has continued to grow and provide high quality education opportunities for local families.

Labor has been in government in Victoria for 15 of the last 19 years, and has failed to provide for the school’s needs.

By investing in upgrades at Mount Waverley Secondary College, locals can start to get some relief from the population squeeze.

Only the Victorian Liberals will get back in control of population growth and back Mount Waverley Secondary College, so that the children will get the very best education.

Comments attributable to Shadow Minister for Education, Tim Smith:

“Out of control population growth caused by the Andrews Labor Government’s lack of planning is placing enormous pressure on our schools.

The Victorian Liberals have a plan to get back in control of education and ease the population squeeze.

The students, teachers and families of Mount Waverley Secondary College deserve modern facilities and only a Victorian Liberal Government will make this happen.”

Comments attributable to Liberal Member for Mount Waverley, Michael Gidley:

“When the Andrews Labor Government cancelled the MWSC rebuild project in 2015, our community was devastated. Since then, I’ve never stopped fighting for the MWSC rebuild project to be reinstated for the future of our kids and our area.

After four years of standing up for our community, I’m delighted that if a State Liberal Government is elected at this year’s state election, we will invest $8 million to commence stage two of the MWSC senior campus rebuild project.”
