Summer School Maintenance Blitz Across NSW
More than $276,000 will be spent on school maintenance projects within the Wagga Wagga electorate over this summer holiday period.
The projects include $67,000 for flooring works at Kooringal Public School and $28,000 for roofing work at Brungle Public School.
Member for Wagga Wagga, Daryl Maguire MP welcomed the investment in local schools in the electorate.
“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,” Mr Maguire said.
He said that the program is another example of how this Government is committed to public education and delivering local infrastructure to support communities right across NSW.
“Just like your family home, there are always jobs to be done to keep our schools in top condition,” Mr Magurie said.
“We are making good use of the summer break to carry out important projects while students are off enjoying their holidays.
“Well over half a million dollars will be spent on school maintenance projects across the Albury electorate, commencing over the summer holiday period and carrying on through the year," he said.
Projects at local schools include:
$143,972 for roofing at Albury PS
$91,709 for maintenance to flooring at James Fallon High School
$88,500 for roofing work for Walbundrie PS
