An Albanese Labor Government will invest in outdoor learning capacity for schools in Gilmore, helping ensure that local children have the best opportunity for a quality education.
Member for Gilmore, Fiona Phillips MP, announced Labor would invest $148,373 in Havenlee School for outdoor learning area upgrades, including a covered outdoor learning area. Labor will also invest $300,000 in Moruya High School for covered outdoor learning areas.
This follows on from previous commitments announced for Bomaderry High School and Ulladulla High School. Outdoor all-weather areas are crucial to the health and wellbeing of students, to ensure they can still gather and play safely outdoors.
Students, teachers and P&Cs across the South Coast have suffered through bushfires, floods and the pandemic over the past three years. Labor will always invest in local schools to help students grown and learn in the best environment.
