Phoenix P-12 Community College

Mr HOWARD                 — Last week I was very pleased to be able to join the Leader of the Opposition and the member for Ballarat West in Sebastopol, where we were able to announce that if elected to  government  in  November,  Labor  will  fund  a $10 million  stage  3 upgrade of Phoenix P-12 Community College. That is great  news for the school community, which over recent years, since the creation of Phoenix P-12, has worked  to  improve  the  image  and  aspirations  of  the school. The announcement will assist members  of the school  community  to continue to  work positively,  knowing  that their facilities  will be able to  match the school’s aspirations.  The  challenge  is for  the  Napthine  government  to  match  this commitment and provide greater certainty for this important school.
