Tarneit students now have bigger, better classrooms and school facilities to learn in, thanks to the Victorian Government.


Member for Western Metropolitan Cesar Melhem today visited Tarneit P-9 College to open its $10 million, which includes Years 7-9 facilities, including specialty classrooms for art, science, performing arts, economics and technology studies, as well as a library.


The school’s upgrade will mean teachers can deliver the 21st century education local students need to succeed.


The Liberals slashed $1 billion out of our education system, leaving schools to crumble and decay across the state.


The Andrews Labor Government has invested more than $3.8 billion to build 70 new schools and upgrade 1,300 schools across the state since coming to office in 2014.

That means thousands of Victorian kids now go to school every day and learn in new classrooms with better technology and facilities, like new gyms and science labs.

It’s also helped create 5,000 construction jobs for Victorians right around our state.

A re-elected Labor Government will keep delivering for Victorians with more new schools and upgrades to existing schools across the state.
