Camboon PS upgrade
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.”
