Gippsland South The Nationals Korumburra Education

Sign up for new Korumburra Secondary College

The Korumburra Secondary College community and local Nationals MP Danny O’Brien are encouraging local residents to show their support this summer for a rebuild of the school.

The Member for Gippsland South, Mr O’Brien met with college representatives yesterday to promote the petition currently being circulated calling on the Andrews Labor Government to fund Stage 2 of the Korumburra Secondary College rebuild.

“It was great to see students move in this term to the new STEAM building funded by The Nationals in government in 2014 but it remains a disappointment that we have not seen funding flow for Stage 2,” Mr O’Brien said.

“We committed to finishing the school at the 2014 election but so far, there has been no commitment from the Labor Party.

“It would be great to finish the project now that Stage 1 is being used to ensure that our Korumburra students have access to the best quality educational infrastructure.”

Mr O’Brien said he’d had great support from the school including its community engagement group, which has been actively circulating the petitions around town.

“It would be great to have thousands of signatures on a petition to table when Parliament resumes next year to demonstrate the community’s support for this important project and hopefully having it funded in next year’s state budget,” Mr O’Brien said.

“Our students deserve nothing less and with Korumburra likely to grow in future this rebuild is very much needed.

“I encourage people to seek out the petitions in local businesses over January so that we can keep the pressure up on the Andrews Labor Government.”
