More than $1.3 million will be spent on 33 school maintenance projects in the Lismore electorate over the summer holiday period.

Some of the schools which will benefit from funding include –

Member for Lismore Thomas George 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 George 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.

“Just like your family home, there are always jobs to be done to keep our schools in top condition,” Mr George said.

“We are making good use of the summer break to carry out important projects while students are off enjoying their holidays.

“The bulk of the maintenance is painting, floor coverings and roofing.”

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 its maintenance project lists slashed by December 2018.
