Cam­boon PS up­grade

Eastern Reporter - - News -

STU­DENTS at Cam­boon Pri­mary School will have ac­cess to up­graded class­rooms and a shaded out­door learn­ing area at the start of the school year.

The State Gov­ern­ment has given $250,000 for build­ing works, which in­clude re­plac­ing old class­room con­certina doors with slid­ing doors with white­board sur­faces.

In the pre-pri­mary out­door area, sev­eral old per­go­las will be re­moved in place of a paved and shaded out­door learn­ing space with seat­ing.

A cov­ered out­door area will be con­structed for up­per pri­mary stu­dents, in­clud­ing a lime­stone wall for seat­ing.

Prin­ci­pal Jan­ice Cu­cu­loska said the school’s class­rooms – four of which did not have doors – had not been ren­o­vated since they were built in 1971.

“It is go­ing to make a big dif­fer­ence to the noise as­pect, where kids will be able to con­cen­trate and teach­ers won’t have to use their voice too much,” she said.

“Teach­ers can spend on fur­ni­ture so they can re­ar­range their class­rooms and we are re­ally look­ing at flex­i­ble class­rooms and learn­ing spa­ces.”
