THE HON TANYA PLIBERSEK MP
DEPUTY LEADER OF THE OPPOSITION
SHADOW MINISTER FOR EDUCATION AND TRAINING
SHADOW MINISTER FOR WOMEN
LABOR CANDIDATE FOR HASLUCK
LABOR WILL DELIVER $50,000 FOR WALLISTON PRIMARY SCHOOL
The Federal Labor candidate for Hasluck, James Martin, today joined the Deputy Labor Leader, Tanya Plibersek, to announce that a Shorten Labor Government will give Walliston Primary School $50,000 to build an outdoor shelter in the early childhood education centre and upgrade the cricket nets.
Labor understands sport plays an important role in the development of Australian kids – it’s not just good for their health, but also for developing their self-esteem, team work, and communication.
“I would like to thank Tanya for coming to Walliston Primary School today and for announcing this funding,” Mr Martin said.
“Investing in our schools and childcare centres is crucial to the development of our children and is at the heart of what the Labor party is all about,” he said.
This $50,000 commitment is on top of the extra $260,000 Walliston Primary School will receive for teaching and learning if a Shorten Labor Government is elected.
Schools across the electorate of Hasluck will be more than $26.3 million better off with Labor.
“Our extra investment will transform public schools across Hasluck and give all children the opportunity to reach their full potential, no matter where they live, or how much their parents earn,” Ms Plibersek said.
“At the next election there will be a clear choice for voters – Labor’s commitment to invest in public schools, or the Liberals’ cuts,” she said.
