Murrumba electorate schools are sharing in $1.2 million for improvements to classrooms and other facilities as they benefit from the Palaszczuk Government’s record investment in school maintenance.
All local schools are benefiting from our state-wide $667 million school infrastructure program. This will help our state schools stay on top of their maintenance needs and ensure students have access to quality education facilities.
Education is a priority for me, and I want our state school students to have the best possible classrooms to make the most of their education.
Local maintenance projects include:
$300,000 for Deception Bay State High School – to refurbish the Home Economics Block
$200,000 for Deception Bay State School for classroom refurbishments.
Schools in Mango Hill and North Lakes will share more than $335,000, with Moreton Downs and Hercules Road State Schools, in Deception Bay and Rothwell benefiting from over $134,000 in funding.
To ensure that classes are not disrupted most of the work will be carried out over school holiday periods.
Each year Principals and Condition Assessors work together to prioritise maintenance projects for local schools. Our school maintenance is not only building better schools across Murrumba and Queensland but also providing valuable jobs for tradies and training opportunities for apprentices.
At least 10% of all maintenance work carried out on state schools will be done by apprentices, ensuring we continue to develop skills locally.
