Member for Lingiari, Warren Snowdon, today joined the Deputy Labor Leader, Tanya Plibersek, to announce that a Shorten Labor Government will invest $50,000 towards new smartboards at Gillen Primary School.
Labor knows that investing in schools of the future is critical for improving the educational outcomes of Australian kids.
“I would like to thank Tanya for coming to Gillen Primary School today and for announcing this funding,” Warren Snowdon said.
“Investing in our schools and childcare centres is crucial to the development of our children and is at the heart of what the Labor Party is all about,” he said.
Today’s $50,000 commitment is on top of the extra $360,000 Gillen Primary School will receive in the first three years of a Shorten Labor Government.
Schools across the electorate of Lingiari will be more than $26.9 million better off under Labor.
“Our extra investment will transform public schools across Lingiari and give all children the opportunity to reach their full potential, no matter where they live, or how much their parents earn,” said Ms Plibersek.
“At the next election there will be a clear choice for voters – Labor’s commitment to invest in public schools, or the Liberals’ $14 billion cuts.”
