Our kids deserve the best possible education - and that means having high quality schools in your local neighbourhood. Whether you live in the suburbs, the regions or in the heart of our largest city.
For the growing number of families living in and around the Sydney CBD, public high schools are often too distant or nearing full capacity.
With families increasingly living in the inner city, close to essential services and amenities - projections have shown there will be no space left in highs schools serving the inner city by 2018. Already there is no comprehensive high school within the CBD at all.
That’s why Labor will build a new state-of-the-art inner city highs school - without selling off your electricity network.
The new school will accommodate up to 1,500 students.
Labor has listened to the local community and we understand this needs to be addressed without delay – that’s why a Labor Government will set aside $60 million to build a new inner city high school on the site of the Cleveland Street Intensive English High School.
Pledge your support if you believe there’s no time to waste in building the future of education right in the heart of Sydney.
