Students across Narre Warren South have returned to school today, with the Andrews Labor Government stepping up to provide more support for local schools, students and their families.

Twelve schools in Narre Warren South will share in over $4 million of additional funding for the 2016 school year and breakfast clubs will be established at Strathaird Primary School, River Gum Primary School, Coral Park Primary School and Hampton Park Primary School.

State Member for Narre Warren South Judith Couacaud Graley MP today visited Hampton Park Primary School to meet with the new preps and view plans for the much needed $5 million rebuild of the school.

In 2016, the Andrews Labor Government will provide students in need with uniforms and glasses and help students attend important educational activities through the $148.3 million Camps, Sports and Excursions Fund.

All preps at government schools will also receive custom-made Crumpler library bags that are weather-proof and long-lasting so that they can accompany students throughout their journey at primary school.
