DBAY SCHOOLS:

COOLER SCHOOLS PROJECT

More airconditioning into Deception Bay Classrooms!

  • We request that Education Queensland commence a project to air condition all appropriate classrooms in Deception Bay schools; Deception Bay State School, Deception Bay North State School, Deception Bay State High School and Moreton Downs State School. We believe this project is imperative as many of our building are older, hotter and not designed for passive cooling. We know that air conditioning will help create a much improved learning environment for our students and help build a better education for Deception Bay kids.

NEW SCHOOL FOR BURPENGARY EAST!

New School for Burpengary East!

  • We request that Education Queensland secure the land and start the process to establish a new state primary school in Burpengary East. Our community is one of the fastest-growing in the Moreton Bay region and the growth of the North Harbour development means hundreds of new families and thousands of school-aged children will move into our area. Providing quality education for our kids is a top priority for our community, and the creation of a new primary school in Burpengary East is strongly supported by all our local families.
