Special school gets new area
A NEW covered outdoor learning area at Ipswich West Special School will deliver better education for students, Federal Member for Blair Shayne Neumann said.
The $300,000 construction funded through the Building the Education Revolution (BER) was officially opened on Friday by Mr Neumann.
Mr Neumann said the new facilities would be a great benefit to Ipswich West Special School and the local community.
“To see these new buildings funded, planned and constructed in less than 12 months is a credit to the school community and to our local tradespeople,” he said.
Mr Neumann said the opening of the new buildings at West Ipswich marked an exciting phase in the Building the Education Revolution.
“It is tremendous to celebrate the opening of this new multi-purpose hall and resource centre and to witness first-hand the impact it has had on Ipswich West Special School and the broader community,” he said.
“I am also delighted this project has delivered value for taxpayers’ dollars, was delivered on time and on budget and has employed many contractors from the building and construction industry.”
The $1.28 billion National School Pride (NSP) program has delivered funding to more than 9400 eligible primary schools in every state and territory for minor infrastructure and refurbishment.
