The Andrews Labor Government is not only committed to the $100k feasibility study into turning the former Preston Girls’ School into a high school, but will also rebuild William Ruthven Secondary College at a cost of $10 million.
William Ruthven Secondary College
The Andrews Labor Government’s first budget delivers $10 million to upgrade William Ruthven Secondary College. I’m very proud to represent this dedicated school community and I’m delighted they are recieving funding for vital improvements. The funding will go towards a new year 7 – 9 building, a year 10 – 12 building, and administration facilities. The word is scheduled to be by mid 2017.
Preston Girls Secondary College
As a local member, I will work with the community to return public education to the former Preston Girls College Site. A study into the reopening the former Girls College will include input from a number of stakeholders including the local council, schools and the Metropolitan Planning Authority.
