Every parent wants their children to be happy, healthy and to have every opportunity in life.

That means being able to rely on a great local school and know their kids are getting the very best start in life.

It’s why, over the past four years, the Victorian Government has invested $10.8 billion across education, including building 70 new schools and upgrading 1,300 more.

But when it comes to making sure our kids can reach their full potential, we know there is always more to do.

We promised to open 100 new schools across our state over the next eight years, helping to meet the needs of families in our fastest growing communities.

Through the Victorian Budget 2019/20, we’re making that positive plan a reality, ensuring good quality schools – for every child, wherever they live and whatever their background.
