O’Brien: “It’s Korumburra’s turn”

GIPPSLAND South MLA Danny O’Brien said Korumburra Secondary College is not getting its fair share.

He visited Korumburra on Tuesday, April 21, calling on the State Government to provide funding so Korumburra Secondary College can complete its redevelopment.

“Pretty much all the other secondary colleges in Gippsland South have been done,” Mr O’Brien said.

The Coalition gave the school $5.6 million for stage one of the project in 2014 and promised $9 million more during the state election.

Mr O’Brien is calling on Labor to match the $9 million so Korumburra Secondary College can finish its redevelopment.

“This is a really important project for Korumburra,” Mr O’Brien said.

“The community of Korumburra wants this project finished and that’s why we’re continuing to push for it.”

A petition demanding the funding is circulating in the community. Mr O’Brien collected petitions with 200 signatures from the college.

College funding: Gippsland South MLA Danny O’Brien, Korumburra Secondary College principal Abigail Graham and Eastern Region MLA Melina Bath at Korumburra Secondary College are hoping the school will receive State Government funding.
