Labor doesn’t live up to air-conditioning promise for Nanango Electorate schools

3rd February 2020

Member for Nanango, Deb Frecklington, has called out the Labor Government for not completing its promised air-conditioning rollout for the first week of the 2020 school year.

Mrs Frecklington said 14 Nanango Electorate schools were still waiting for their promised air-conditioned classrooms.

“Temperatures have soared this week, and our local school children will be struggling to learn in these conditions,” Mrs Frecklington said.

“Education Minister, Grace Grace promised to fast-track funding for schools to have their air-conditioning installed over the summer holidays, but this hasn’t happened.

“Unlike Labor, the LNP is committed to air-conditioning every state school in Queensland – without exception.

“The LNP knows that cool kids are smart kids.

“Our state schools need cool classrooms and that’s what the LNP will deliver.”

South Burnett schools still waiting for every classroom to be air-conditioned are:
