Member for Myall Lakes, Stephen Bromhead has announced that around $2.9 million will be spent on school maintenance projects in Myall Lakes over the summer holiday period.
Twenty four schools will benefit from the maintenance program during this period.
Projects at local schools include $297,594 for Pacific Palms Public School, $264,989 at Old Bar Public School and $1.44 million for Great Lakes College, Forster campus.
A further $894,000 will be provided to schools from Bulahdelah in the south to Bobin in the north.
“Maintenance will include painting, roofing and floor coverings, I welcome the continued investment in local schools in the Myall Lakes electorate,” Mr Bromhead said.
“Every child deserves to have access to great facilities, wonderful teachers and get an excellent education.
“That is what we are delivering for students here in the Myall Lakes, just like your family home, there are always jobs to be done to keep our schools in top condition.
“We are making good use of the summer break to carry out important projects while students are off enjoying their holidays.”
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.
The funding allows each and every school across the State to have their maintenance project lists slashed by December 2018.
