SCORCHING temperatures across Queensland reinforces the need for the LNP’s plan to air-con every state school classroom.
Air-con isn’t compulsory in state schools in southeast Queensland, including on the Coast.
Our children and teachers continue to swelter in classrooms with no air-con and I believe if it’s good enough that we air-condition other public buildings, it should be good enough for our kids and teachers as well.
This plan will keep kids cool and help them with their studies. Studies have shown students produce better results in schools that have air-con.
Our NAPLAN results are going backwards and it is no wonder kids are struggling to learn when some days their classrooms are over 35°C.
The LNP’s plan to air-con classrooms will lead to better results and a more comfortable environment for our teachers. It’s time the Palaszczuk government came onboard and matched our commitment.
I’ll also take this opportunity to wish all residents a merry Christmas and happy new year.
