THE Victorian Liberal Nationals have pledged to provide $10 million in funding towards Frankston High School if elected in November.
The funding would be used for an extensive refurbishment of the school’s existing administration building, general learning areas and technology areas.
Frankston Liberal candidate Michael Lamb said that “parents in the Frankston community are keen to see their children have the best education possible and they should be able to send their children to a quality school in their local area.”
“Frankston High School is a great local success story where school leaders, the community and parents have all worked together to create a fantastic culture,” he said.
Shadow Minister for Education Tim Smith said that “Frankston High School is an outstanding local secondary school. A facilities upgrade will support teachers in delivering world-class education, knowing they have the necessary resources to help their students continue to excel. The Liberal Nationals are committed to providing first-rate facilities at Frankston High School and giving local students every chance they need to pursue a quality education.”
The seat of Frankston is one of the most marginal in the state, and the campaign will be hotly contested in the lead up to November.
