$7000 for Dagun school repairs

PUBLIC Works Minister Robert Schwarten this week announced more than $7000 in funding for roof repairs at Dagun State School.

Mr Schwarten said the funding would allow for roof repairs to the covered link between administration and staff buildings at the school.

“This funding is great news for the students, parents and teachers of Dagun State School said. I understand this work is important to the entire school community and I am delighted to deliver this funding through the Department of Public Works’ Special Building Needs program,” he said.

“The Special Building Needs program was developed alongside existing maintenance programs to undertake projects that arise in the course of the year or that are unable to be completed by the school because of the cost.

“This funding demonstrates the Bligh Government’s commitment to maintaining public infrastructure for the benefit of the community and ensures we are on the path to achieving our Toward Q2 targets of a stronger, smarter, fairer Queensland.”

He said the work would be programmed for completion as soon as possible, with every effort made to minimise disruption to classes. The State Government’s construction and maintenance division, QBuild, will manage the project.
