Snowy Mountains licensed venues are well prepared for the snow season peak
Students at Queanbeyan East Public School have returned to a school boasting a number of new classrooms, a new learning space and a new canteen.
Member for Monaro John Barilaro said today marked a milestone for Queanbeyan East Public School, with the $10 million dollar upgrade set to benefit generations to come.
“I am so excited to join students, teachers and staff today to officially open these new facilities, which will help deliver the high-quality education our children need to succeed now and in the future,” Mr Barilaro said.
“It is great to see all the smiling faces, as students step foot in their new classrooms and take in all the new amenities on offer.”
The $10 million upgrade at Queanbeyan East Public School delivered an air conditioned
learning centre, which includes 11 new classrooms and a special programs room for students.
In addition, students will also be able to enjoy a new covered outdoor learning area and canteen, while upgrades have been made to the library, administration areas and toilets.
Mr Barilaro said the upgrade at Queanbeyan East Public School is about investing in our children’s future.
“Queanbeyan East, like many communities across the Monaro, is growing and it needed a school to meet those needs”, Mr Barilaro said.
“This upgrade has achieved exactly that, and our children can continue to learn in the very best facilities available.”
Education Minister Sarah Mitchell said the NSW Government recognised the importance of investing in children’s education, as well as ensuring students and teachers have great places in which to learn and teach.
“In the past 12 months we have completed 42 school infrastructure projects, representing a $1 billion investment in future generations, delivering 679 new classrooms and other worldclass facilities,” Ms Mitchell said.
The NSW Government is investing $6.7 billion over this term of Government to deliver more than 190 new and upgraded schools to support communities across NSW.
