Students and staff will benefit from improved infrastructure at two local schools as part of the Palaszczuk Government’s $157.2 million investment in world-class education in Ipswich.
A new outdoor learning area and general refurbishments will be delivered at Redbank State School, while a new car park will be built at Redbank Plains State High School.
Member for Bundamba Lance McCallum said the upgrades were expected to be completed in time for the start of the 2022 school year.
“A new outdoor learning area at Redbank State School will complement the playground and other improvements that we officially opened in July,” Mr McCallum said.
“We’re supporting the school community with another $500,000 upgrade that I am sure will be warmly welcomed by students and staff.
“Funding of $400,000 will deliver a modern new car park at Redbank State High School, along with improved landscaping and footpaths.
“The extended car park will include a new one-way exit onto Keidges Road, boom gates and new lighting and line marking.
“It will help improve motorist and pedestrian safety around the busy school during drop off and pick up times.”
