All Queensland schools will be cool by 2022

National Nine News

QLD Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has announced every state school will have air conditioning in the next two years.

Almost two-thirds of QLD schools currently have air-con and the move will bring relief to staff and students in the remaining 650 schools.

The Premier says, “Investing in education means a brighter future for Queensland.”

Thousands of solar panels will be installed to help offset energy costs.

The move is a major backflip for the QLD Government which had previously rejected the LNP’s AC plan for schools.

The rollout is expected to begin immediately.
