The Member for Polwarth, Terry Mulder has today been quoted in the Colac Herald stating that a Liberal State Government would match Labor’s promise to fund the rebuild of the Apollo Bay P-12 College.
This shows that the Liberal Government have no policy on education for Victoria, and are simply committing to rebuild schools on an ad hoc basis with no plan or direction.
The Brumby Government have invited Apollo Bay P-12 into the Building Futures Program and will now prepare a case, outlining the new building projects that would lead to improved student learning as part of the Program.
“This is a great opportunity for Apollo Bay P-12 to plan for new facilities specifically designed to enhance it learning styles and programs”, Ms Tierney said.
“Construction will be guided by the Brumby Government’s Building Future’s policy, which means that curriculum would inform school design.
“This is a better way of planning school buildings projects because it creates a logical fit between building design and the teaching and learn occurring within these buildings across our schools.
“However the Liberal Party are committing to fund the rebuild of schools on an ad hoc basis with no plan or direction.
“Coming up to an election, the Liberal party are committing to schools here and there, with no policy at all.
“The Brumby Government is executing its committment, ahead of schedule, to renovate or rebuild every Victorian school by 2016”
“Whether you live in Apollo Bay, Mildura, Portland or Gippsland, the Brumby Government will not leave a single school behind no matter where it is.
