Building and maintenance projects have been conducted at local NSW government schools in the electorate over the summer holidays in preparation for the 2017 school year. M

ember for Lismore Thomas George said the holidays are quiet times for schools and allow capital works and maintenance projects to take place.

Minor capital works included classroom and canteen upgrades, disability access works, and upgrades to facilities like toilets and walkways. The bulk of the maintenance is painting, floor coverings and roofing.

“It’s not glamorous work but it’s essential to maintaining our schools as welcoming and functional learning environments,” Mr George said.

“Students and staff will notice a difference when they return to school next week.”
