Opening of Keysborough College STEM Centre
It was great to speak at the official opening of Keysborough College STEM Centre. The completion of the STEM centre is a tribute to the dedication and fundraising efforts of the school community.
The STEM centre is an important part of Keysborough College’s commitment to the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.
The STEM centre represents 21st century teaching and learning and also promotes female participation in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics which has been historically low.
Before the election, I promised our local parents, students and teachers that under Labor, Keysborough College would receive the funding they urgently need to upgrade and modernise their facilities – I’m pleased to deliver on that promise.
Keysborough College will receive an initial instalment of $1.5 million this year for detailed planning works for Stage 3 of the school’s modernisation project, which was started under Labor and abandoned by the Liberals.
The remaining funding of Labor’s $11.5 million commitment will be provided during this term of government.
