Money for local schools: Labor candidate for Campbelltown Greg Warren with shadow education minister Ryan Park at Briar Public School this week.

A Foley Labor Government will spend more than $12 million on local schools, says their candidate for Campbelltown, Greg Warren.

The schools set to benefit from this funding are:

⇒ Bradbury Public, new gymnasium, $4 million;

⇒ Ambarvale Primary, new library and classroom, $2,5 million;

⇒ Briar Road Public, new library, $2 million;

⇒ Campbelltown North Public, four new classrooms, $2 million;

⇒ Ruse Public, three new classrooms, $1.5 million;

⇒ Beverly Park Public School (special needs) therapeutic pool, $100,000.

“I’m very pleased to announce that I have been able to secure more than $12 million for Campbelltown schools,’’ Mr Warren said.

“This investment will give many of our local students new classrooms, libraries and a gymnasium.

“I have listened carefully to the community and locals have made it very clear – they want to see Labor investing in our schools.”

Mr Warren and shadow education minister Ryan Park were at Briar Public School, Airds, to make the announcement earlier this week.

“This $12 million investment in Campbelltown schools comes without the need to privatise the state’s electricity network,’’ Mr Park said.

“Our plan is fully-funded and will see significant, much-needed improvements to these locals schools.’’
