2 billion to upgrade or build from scratch more than 250 schools if it wins the election.

Premier Denis Napthine said the coalition would provide an additional $5.4 billion for the state’s primary and secondary schools, with $4.2 billion of that from the Gonski agreement with the federal government.

“We will invest $1.2 billion in new schools and school upgrades over the next four years, because we know that having access to new, modern learning facilities helps young people reach their full potential,” Dr Napthine said on Monday.

Between 250 to 400 schools will benefit from the $1.2 billion capital works fund over the next four years, if the Napthine government is re-elected at this month’s election.

Dr Napthine announced the investment at a site in Wonthaggi where the town’s existing secondary college would be relocated and rebuilt in a $21 million project.

“This funding will be to build new schools, and also to fund upgrades or major refurbishments of existing schools that require upgrading to meet modern teaching requirements,” he said.

Dr Napthine said the $1.2 billion was separate from the funds allocated to school upgrades in the 2014/15 state budget.

He said more than $300 million of the $1.2 billion has already been allocated to projects.

Opposition Leader Daniel Andrews said he would not comment on the coalition’s education policy.

“Labor has a comprehensive plan to repair the damage that’s been done to our TAFE sector,” he said.

He said Labor had already announced support for capital works funding for Catholic and independent schools and more than $500 million in school capital works.

Both major parties have pledged $120 million for capital works at needy Catholic and independent schools.
