Charlestown School Maintenance Backlog
03 May 2018
Teachers are undertaking cleaning tasks on a regular basis such as the washing down of mouldy walls because it is not being removed. The actions being taken by teachers, parents and friends of schools are shocking and have been for a number of years. Our teachers, principals, support staff and students should not have to work and learn in a second-rate environment, left frustrated by bureaucracy. This is not about capital works; this is about maintenance. It is about peeling paint, threadbare carpets, heating and air conditioning. We are less than one year out from an election. Labor has already committed to delivering $300 million for air conditioning in classrooms and there is much more to come.
