An old school gets new look

STUDENTS at Tarampa State School are now enjoying their new resource centre following the official opening on June 3.

Member for Ipswich West, Wayne Wendt, said the entire school community was boosted by the new facilities


Mr Wendt said the new facilities were being funded through the Federal Government's $16.2 billion Building the Education Revolution program which is providing contemporary educational facilities to eligible Australian schools as part of a national economic stimulus package.

“This is an excellent example of the two levels of Government working together for Queensland's children,” Mr Wendt said.

“Tarampa State School received $850,000 million to help build the new multi-purpose hall while an additional $75,000 helped fund minor refurbishments around the school.”

Member for Blair, Shayne Neumann, said the new library was a welcome addition to the school, which opened in 1880.
