Summer maintenance blitz for Monaro schools

Thursday, 14 December 2017

Member for Monaro John Barilaro today announced that students will return to school in 2018 and be welcomed with upgraded facilities thanks to the NSW Government’s $444,000 investment in summer maintenance projects in the Monaro.

Projects at local schools include painting and coating at:
Queanbeyan West Public School – $31,137,
Queanbeyan Public School – $41,200,
Delegate Public School – $18,190,
Cooma North Public School – $1048,
Braidwood Central School – $9,095, and
Bombala Public School – $19,425.

Roofing work will be undertaken at:
Cooma Public School – $196,151,
Bredbo Public School – $87,811, and
Adaminaby Public School – $39,961.

“Every child deserves to have access to great facilities, wonderful teachers and get an excellent education and that is what we are delivering for students here in the Monaro,” Mr Barilaro said.

“There are always jobs to be done to keep our schools in top condition,”

“While students are off enjoying their well-deserved holidays, we are making good use of the summer break to carry out important projects and upgrades.”

Education Minister Rob Stokes said this program is another example of how this Government is committed to public education and delivering local infrastructure to support communities right across NSW.

“With a $25 billion property portfolio of 2,200 schools there will always be maintenance to be done, but good management will keep the list as short as possible, and we are here doing just that.” Mr Stokes said.

The summer holiday blitz is part of the NSW Government’s record $747 million school maintenance investment over the next four years announced in the 2017 Budget, allowing each and every school across the State to have their maintenance project lists slashed by December 2018.
