FULL LIST: CQ schools to benefit from $58m funding boost

A PRIMARY school in Rockhampton is set to reap the benefits of a $58 million state funding initiative should the Palaszczuk Government be re-elected this month.

The Hall State School at Wandal will be one of 33 local state schools, spanning from Gladstone to Gracemere, to be included in the huge funding boost.

Under the scheme, the school will receive a new multi-purpose hall to the cost of $5 million - making the institution one of the larger recipients.

A total of 44 projects will be undertaken under the $1 billion education policy, with around 3100 constructions jobs expected to come as a result.

 

$58 million in state funding initiative will be divvied out to Central Queensland schools if the Palaszczuk Government is re-elected this month.

Member for Keppel Brittany Lauga welcomed today's announcement, saying she was pleased to see more new dollars going towards education across her electorate.

"I'm particularly excited to see funding allocated for new facilities at Yeppoon State High, as well as additional infrastructure at Emu Park and Mount Archer State Schools."

Both schools will receive a respective $730,000 and $375,000 grants under the scheme.

She further reinforced how the development was not only beneficial for school communities, but also local tradies who would likely tender for the projects.

Rockhampton MP Barry O'Rourke agreed, adding The Hall State School was the big winner in the new funding announcement.

"To see $5 million locked in for a new multi-purpose hall at The Hall SS makes me incredibly happy," he said.

"I know the students and teachers there, as well as at the other schools that are getting upgrades, will be over the moon with these commitments."

Gladstone MP Glenn Butcher also said millions of dollars would be invested to improve schools across Gladstone.

"I'm proud to see the Palaszczuk Government investing in projects such as new multi-purpose halls, new learning space and better disability access included in this list," Mr Butcher said.
