FULL LIST: North Burnett schools to receive aircon

TEN North Burnett state schools will benefit from a State Government decision to fast-track $50 million in funding to install airconditioning in classrooms.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk announced the decision today in Brisbane.

“For our students and teachers, the classroom is where they spend most of their day,” she said.

“We want all Queensland students to learn in a comfortable and cool environment.

“My government is fast-tracking $50 million to give hundreds of schools the opportunity to start airconditioning their classrooms over the summer school holidays, which will also support hundreds of local jobs and thousands of apprentice hours.

“By fast-tracking this funding, work that had been planned in future years can begin now, providing a valuable boost to our economy.

“My government is committed to giving our students the best learning environments as well as investing in infrastructure to create and support jobs across Queensland.”

The North Burnett schools which will benefit are:

  • Monto State School
  • Mount Perry State School
  • Mundubbera State School
  • Biggenden State School
  • Dallarnil State School
  • Monogorilby State School
  • Coalstoun Lakes State School
  • Gayndah State School
  • Monto State High School
  • Burnett State College
