Department of Education gives green light for Buranda classroom air con

Last year the P&C executive wrote to the Education Department seeking clarification about the proposed master plan for the school so we could move forward with plans to pay for air conditioning.

The Education Minister’s senior policy advisor wrote back to the P&C, assuring us that ‘should any buildings be replaced in the future, the Department of Education would relocate or replace the air conditioning systems as part of the fit-out of the new accommodation’. You can read the full letter here.

It was on the strength of this commitment that the P&C voted to allocate $30,000 towards air conditioning the remaining classrooms at Buranda.

Mr Vaseo is currently seeking quotes and we hope to have the air con installed in the next few weeks.

Note that the P&C also voted to launch an immediate fundraising drive through Qkr! if the quotes exceed the $30,000 committed for the remaining five classrooms (with the school agreeing to fund air con for one of the Prep classrooms).
