Labor snubs Sunshine Coast schools


Sunshine Coast students are being left to swelter through summer after Annastacia Palaszczuk today failed to provide air-conditioning funding for a single school in the region.

Shadow Education Minister Jarrod Bleijie and Member for Kawana said Labor’s snub to the Sunshine Coast showed it was playing favourites with Queensland kids.

“Unlike Labor, I believe that Sunshine Coast students and teachers should work in air-conditioned classrooms,” Mr Bleijie said.

“Every school and student should be treated fairly when it comes to air-conditioning, but Labor is picking favourites.

“There will be a clear choice at the next election between the LNP, who will air-condition every state school classroom in this region, and Labor, who will not.

“Air-conditioning our classrooms is a big investment, but the LNP believes it is worth it.

“Every parent knows that kids can’t learn properly in sweltering classrooms.

“Cool kids are smart kids and that’s why the LNP will air-condition every classroom on the Sunshine Coast.”

Mr Bleijie said the LNP’s plan for education would also include de-cluttering the curriculum.

“Queensland’s NAPLAN scores are going backwards, so we need to make sure our teachers can concentrate on the basics – reading, writing and maths.

“Annastacia Palaszczuk and Labor are stopping our kids from reaching their potential.

“A Deb Frecklington LNP Government will make sure we raise standards and give our kids the best start in life."
