An elected Liberal Nationals Government will provide $1.5 million to construct a new multi-purpose hall at Our Lady Star of the Sea, Cowes.
Our Lady Star of the Sea opened in 2018 and provides outstanding Catholic education for students in Cowes.
This announcement follows the Liberal Nationals commitment of $400 million for capital upgrades for non-government schools.
The Liberal Nationals support a strong public and private education system because we believe in giving parents choice and children the best opportunities.
A critically important part of that choice is for parents to have the option of low-fee, independent and Catholic schools.
It’s never been more important to support all three sectors of our school system.
Our announcement of $1.5 million for Our Lady Star of the Sea is a vital investment in this growing region of Victoria.
Comments attributable to Shadow Minister for Education, Tim Smith:
“We want to work with non-government schools to give all Victorian families choice in education.
I am delighted to be able to announce this $1.5 million investment in Our Lady Star of the Sea, as part of our $400 million commitment to non-government schools.”
Comments attributable to Liberal Member for Bass, Brian Paynter:
“This investment will make a big difference to the students, parents and teachers at the school.
Our Lady Star of the Sea is an outstanding new school in Cowes and I’m delighted to secure this funding to add new facilities.”
