Coalition pledges $15 million for Seymour College
12 November 2014
The Nationals candidate for Euroa Steph Ryan today announced that a re-elected Coalition Government would provide $15 million for the Seymour College regeneration project.
Ms Ryan said she had lobbied strongly for funding for the school, and was proud to announce that Seymour College’s regeneration would be completed under a re-elected Coalition Government.
“After months of lobbying for this funding I am so excited to announce that if re-elected on November 29, a re-elected Coalition Government will invest $15 million into the regeneration to assist the final two stages to be completed.
“Under a re-elected Coalition Government Seymour College will be able to commence the second and third stages of its regeneration, which includes rebuilding the year 5-8 and 9-12 facilities and developing the technical wing,” Ms Ryan said.
“I know the school is grateful to the Coalition Government for its investment in the first stage of its regeneration, and staff and parents are excited to see the project completed.
“Education is one of my key priorities as The Nationals candidate for Euroa. I believe all young people, whether they live in the city or the country, deserve quality learning environments.
“The Coalition Government is proud to be delivering 24 new schools and upgrades to hundreds of schools through a $1.1 billion investment,” Ms Ryan said.
Ms Ryan said a re-elected Coalition Government would continue to deliver for students and families in the Euroa electorate.
“The Coalition Government has already backed the Benalla P-12 regeneration project by announcing an initial $5 million in this year’s State Budget, and a further $15 million election commitment to help complete that project,” Ms Ryan said.
“In addition, we have delivered $631,000 in additional maintenance funding for schools, and building better schools for the future of our young people.
“A good education is the key to securing a good local job, and if I am elected I will continue to put the needs of our students and families first.”
