Renovations were completed at Grand Avenue State School during the June/July school holidays, Member for Algester Leeanne Enoch said today.
Ms Enoch said the works were part of the Palaszczuk Government’s record four-year, $780 million school maintenance program.
“We are committed to ensuring that every child has access to a quality education and that includes quality school facilities,” she said.
“This is a major investment that is helping our state schools carry out important maintenance, refurbishments and upgrades to classrooms and other facilities.
“We are helping our local schools continue to provide excellent learning environments for students.”
Ms Enoch said the local school maintenance project provided $9009 for repair of paths in the school.
“These projects not only improve our local schools, but they provide valuable jobs for tradies and training opportunities for apprentices,” she said.
“Our investment in school maintenance is expected to create more than 3000 full-time jobs around the state.”
