Casey TECH School

MS GRALEY (Narre Warren South) — (Question 6986) My question is to the Minister for Education and concerns the Andrews Labor government’s commitment to build a Casey tech school.

I ask: where will this much-needed tech school be located?

Local residents, businesses, schools and the local council are very excited about the fantastic opportunities this unique and innovative centre of learning will provide. They are all seeking further information, particularly about where it will be located within our local community, and they are looking forward to it opening in 2018.

All want to be involved as they can see the immense benefits it will provide to everyone, from students to their schools and also to local businesses and industry. The Casey tech school will provide students with the opportunity to use state-of-the-art technology and to discover new and innovative ways of working and learning — experiences beyond the normal classroom. So I excitedly ask: where will the Casey tech school be located?
