Liberal Nationals to upgrade St Francis Xavier Primary School, Ballarat East

Opposition Press Releases

An elected Liberal Nationals Government will provide $3.2 million to complete stages two and three of a Masterplan at St Francis Xavier Primary School in Ballarat East.

The funding will benefit the growing numbers of students at the school, and provide much needed new classrooms and toilet facilities.

This announcement follows the Liberal Nationals commitment of $400 million for capital upgrades for non-government schools.

The Liberal Nationals support a strong public and private education system because we believe in giving parents choice and children the best opportunities.

A critically important part of that choice is for parents to have the option of low-fee, independent and Catholic schools.

With the current population squeeze limiting parental choices it’s never been more important to support all three sectors of our school system.

Our announcement of $3.2 million for St Francis Xavier Primary is a vital investment as enrolments at St Francis Xavier continue to rise.

Comments attributable to Shadow Minister for Education, Tim Smith:

“I am delighted to be able to announce this $3.2 million investment in St Francis Xavier Primary School, Ballarat East, as part of our $400 million commitment to non-government schools.

Only the Liberal Nationals will give the students and teachers at St Francis Xavier Primary School the modern facilities they deserve.”
