Member for Mulgrave Curtis Pitt today announced more than $11,000 in funding for floor covering at Hambledon State School.

Mr Pitt said the funding would allow for the installation of new floor coverings to Amenities Block G at Hambledon State School.

“This funding is great news for the students, parents and teachers of Hambledon State School,” Mr Pitt said.

“I know from talking to teachers and parents that this work is important to the school community and I am delighted my representations to Public Works Minister Robert Schwarten have resulted in this funding becoming available.”

Mr Pitt said the funding for the project was provided through the Department of Public Works’ Special Building Needs program.

“The Special Building Needs program was developed alongside existing maintenance programs to undertake projects that arise in the course of the year or that are unable to be completed by the school because of the cost,” Mr Pitt said.

“This funding demonstrates the State Government’s commitment to maintaining public infrastructure for the benefit of the community and ensures we are on the path to achieving our Toward Q2 targets of a stronger, smarter, fairer Queensland.”

Mr Pitt said the work would be programmed for completion as soon as possible, with every effort being made to minimise disruption to classes.

QBuild, the State Government’s construction and maintenance division will manage the project.
