Labor’s Your Child. Our Future plan will benefit every student in North Sydney, with an additional $27 million set to flow to local schools.

Every student has different learning needs and every school has different requirements to support them. Your Child. Our Future will give local schools exactly what they need.

Mr Peter Hayes who is the Labor Candidate for North Sydney said Labor’s plan will give principals and educators the support and resources to deliver programs which make a real difference to the learning outcomes of students.

Your Child. Our Future will mean more individualised support and attention for local students, better early literacy and numeracy intervention programs, and better professional development for our teachers,” said Mr Hayes.

“By committing to the Gonski reforms on-time and in-full, every school and every student will be better off under Labor.”

In contrast to Labor’s positive plan to fund our schools, Malcolm Turnbull is promising cuts of $29 billion to Australia’s classrooms over the next decade – that’s $215 million in North Sydney alone over the next decade – cuts which will negatively impact on the future of our students and the future of our nation.

“Mr Turnbull is making the wrong choices for Australia’s future. He is giving big business a big tax cut at the same time as he cuts funding from every school in the country,” Mr Hayes said.

“Australians know that you don’t get a stronger education system through cuts.

“And Australians also know that you can’t have a plan for jobs and growth if you don’t have a plan for education.

“Properly funding our schools is critical to making sure local students have the skills they need to get a good job. Only Labor will put people first by investing in Australia’s schools.”
