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.
