Heartland tour schedule

This year the Better Funding tour covered the country in an amazing five-month journey, visiting almost every corner of the country.

Tens of thousands of people signed postcards to the Minister of Education, asking for Better Funding for Better Learning. Each signature represents a conversation and one more voter who will be thinking about education and which party is putting our children first when they head to the polling booth on September 23.
