Lo­cal schools can now chill out in class

The Riverine Herald - - CROSSROADS -

THREE lo­cal schools will no longer have to sweat through the sum­mer months thanks to the NSW Govern­ment’s cooler class­rooms pro­gram.

Bun­naloo, Mathoura and Moama pub­lic schools were among 60 schools in the Mur­ray elec­torate cho­sen to re­ceive air-con­di­tion­ing through the pro­gram.

“We live in a very hot part of the state and it’s ex­tremely im­por­tant our chil­dren and teach­ers can en­gage to­gether in a com­fort­able class­room en­vi­ron­ment,” Mem­ber for Mur­ray Austin Evans said. “I’ve spo­ken to many peo­ple across our vast elec­torate who have stressed the im­por­tance of air con­di­tion­ing in our class­rooms, so I’m thrilled that our elec­torate is a big win­ner in the pro­gram.’’

Schools with an av­er­age max­i­mum Jan­uary tem­per­a­ture of 30C or more will now au­to­mat­i­cally re­ceive air con­di­tion­ing in their class­rooms and li­braries.
