The Nationals in Government will share in 4600 new teachers announced on Wednesday, ensuring regional and rural communities get their fair share.

This multi-billion dollar investment will lift the number of teachers in public schools to the highest in the State’s history.

Having laid the bricks and mortar, built shiny new school halls and classrooms, and securing funding to wipe the slate clean on the school maintenance backlog, the Nationals in Government are ready to fill our schools with the best and brightest teachers, ready to shape the lives of the next generation.

Teachers are at the heart of our communities, and our children spend a huge part of some of the most critical years of their lives learning from them, improving their lives and the lives of their friends. With the NSW Nationals delivering more teachers, our children will take advantage of the increased time these teachers will be able to spend with each and every student.

With these new teachers, our children will be supported to get the most from their education, contrasted to Labor’s record of closing schools, sacking teachers and letting our schools fall into disrepair.

We’ve built the schools, now it’s your time to get more teachers.
