Public schools in the Goulburn electorate have received a boost of almost $4 million worth of maintenance.
The schools were among 968 in NSW to receive additional maintenance work, clearing over half of the outstanding school maintenance list across the state.
About $3,820,000 was spent in 26 schools across the Goulburn region, part of a $1.3 billion statewide election commitment by the NSW Government.
The maintenance focused on repairs and upgrades including roof works, new floor coverings, drainage, electrical work and painting.
Among many projects, food technology at Boorowa High School was upgraded, Crookwell High received access upgrades and a number of Goulburn primary schools received painting and carpentry work.
Goulburn MP Wendy Tuckerman MP welcomed the upgrades. "I'm very pleased to hear about the significant amount of works that have been done in schools across the electorate in regards to repairs and maintenance, especially during such a busy time over the school holiday period," Mrs Tuckerman said.
"These works represent a commitment to not just maintain our public schools but to constantly improve them."
Goulburn High, Goulburn North Public, Goulburn Public, Goulburn East Public, Goulburn West Public, Marulan Public, Mulwaree High, Bradfordville Public, Tarago Public and Windellama Public schools received funding.
