Member for Buderim has revealed there is some good news in the budget for two of his electorate’s biggest state schools, Mountain Creek State High School and Chancellor State College.
 
“Mountain Creek State High School and Chancellor State College are already beyond capacity, so the news that they will share in state-wide funding is a welcome relief.

“Our school communities have been calling on the State Government to fund the new classrooms they need to cater for the growth in student numbers. It is good to see that the Government has finally listened and responded to these calls for help.

Mr Mickelberg said the exact detail of what funding will be received and what the funds will be spent on will be revealed tomorrow when the Treasurer hands the budget down in Parliament.

“The Sunshine Coast is experiencing unprecedented growth and our infrastructure has failed to keep pace.
 
“Our children can’t learn as well when they don’t even have a proper classroom and it isn’t acceptable to expect families to put up with the impact of overcrowding year after year.
 
“Schools are the epicentres of community and children are our future, so we must ensure we give them the tools and equipment they need to positively contribute to society as a whole. Principals, teachers and our dedicated P & C’s work incredibly hard with what they have and consistently strive to do more.
 
“I hope for them that tomorrow’s announcement will do more than just fill the current gaps, but genuinely provide for the future growth, which we know will be experienced in the Buderim electorate in coming years.
 
“It is cheaper to do the job properly the first time, and I hope the Government’s funding announcements over the coming week reflect this common sense philosophy,” Mr Mickelberg said.
