26 November 2015 –
Queensland’s state schools are benefiting from the Palaszczuk Labor Government’s record investment in school maintenance – fixing the $260 million backlog of school maintenance work left by the previous Government.
These school holidays crews will be carrying out maintenance on schools right across Queensland – including Stafford Heights State School.
The work at Stafford Height will see the repairing and repurposing of outdoor learning areas and will be completed before school restarts next year.
This school maintenance program is not only building better schools but also providing valuable jobs for tradies and training opportunities for apprentices. At least 10 percent of all maintenance work carried out on state schools will be done by apprentices ensuring we continue to develop skills locally.
