Dr Mark Robinson MP

LNP Member for Cleveland

 

Member for Cleveland, Mark Robinson welcomed the announced funding to Redlands College today.

“Redlands College is a worthy recipient of this Government funding allocation,” Dr Robinson said.

“Any funding announcement towards education, even modest allocations like this one, will be appreciated by the students and school community.”

“Cleveland Schools have largely missed out on infrastructure investment in the last 2 State Budgets, so I’m glad to see that our hard work is finally paying dividends.”

“Still much more funding is required to meet the needs of Cleveland Schools – including several million dollars for a badly needed indoor auditorium at Cleveland High School.

REDLAND CITY BULLETIN ARTICLE: School to get a little bit more Learning http://www.redlandcitybulletin.com.au/story/4321265/school-to-get-a-little-bit-more-learning/

STUDENTS at Redlands College will soon be benefiting from new school rooms and an outdoor learning area.

Capalaba MP Don Brown said $600,000 in infrastructure funding would be spent on the college.

“We know quality learning environments support quality teaching and learning,’’ he said. “We want to ensure that our schools cater for enrolment growth and continue to be quality learning environments that give students the best chance at success.

“This funding includes support for the construction of six new classrooms, a new outdoor learning area and new administration areas at the college.”

Mr Brown said the works were part of the Palaszczuk Government’s $92 million commitment to non-state schools in Queensland in this year’s budget.

“The Palaszczuk Government supports parents’ right to choose a state or non-state education for their children,” he said.

“We want to ensure every student is benefiting from quality classrooms, no matter where they go to school.”

Mr Brown said the investment in non-state schools would support construction jobs across the state.

“Not only are we seeing improvements to schools across the state, but every project is providing valuable jobs for tradies and training opportunities for apprentices,” he said.
