Kealy tables petition in Parliament - Warracknabeal Education Precinct

The Nationals Member for Lowan, Emma Kealy MP has tabled a petition in Parliament this week with over 300 local signatures in support of the Warracknabeal Education Precinct project.

Ms Kealy launched a petition last month to get this vital project back on track and to fix the Andrews Labor Government’s mess of half-built schools.

Labor has provided only a fraction of the funding required to complete the project, leaving the plan to consolidate the Warracknabeal Special Development School, Secondary College and Primary School in limbo.

The schools now face the impossible decision of continuing to work over split campuses or just staying put and leaving brand new school buildings empty until additional funding is received.

“Labor’s made a mess of this project. The school community and Warracknabeal district have sent an overwhelming message to Daniel Andrews that they won’t stand for Labor’s neglect,” Ms Kealy said.

“This petition sends a clear message to Labor that all young people are entitled to a quality education, whether they live in the city or the country, and the residents of Lowan will accept nothing less.

“We must be able to give our local children access to the very best educational services and opportunities and I will continue to fight for a better deal for quality education in our region,” Ms Kealy said.
