Statement regarding Budget funding for schools
The following comments can be attributed to The Nationals Member for Gippsland South, Danny O’Brien.
“We need good local school infrastructure in Gippsland and I congratulate Kongwak and Tarwin Valley Primary Schools on the funding they’ll receive in the upcoming state budget.
“However I am bitterly disappointed that the Labor Government has again overlooked stage two of Korumburra Secondary College and the need for a new primary school at Foster.
“The communities of both of these schools have worked incredibly hard campaigning for state government support and they will be disappointed that they have again been overlooked.
“I have worked with these schools to lobby for funding for upgrades and have tabled petitions in Parliament with hundreds of signatures from locals supporting Korumburra and over 1000 supporting a rebuild of Foster.
“There is no shortage of backing from our communities but we are being let down again by the Andrews Labor Government.”
