Education Budget Delivers for Students and Tradies in Morayfield

June 17, 2021

The Palaszczuk Labor Government has delivered a major investment in school infrastructure for the Morayfield electorate in its 2021-22 State Budget.

State Member for Morayfield Mark Ryan announced that the State Budget would inject more than $19 million this financial year into a range of new building and refurbishment projects at local schools.

“Students and tradies will both be big winners from the State Budget, with a huge investment of school building work in our region,” Mr Ryan said.

“With our population continuing to grow it’s essential we build the classrooms and training facilities needed to give our kids the best possible education.

“In great news for Caboolture State High School, they are receiving a major expansion, with $10.5 million allocated this year, for a $13.6 million project to construct additional classrooms.

“A further $750,000 is allocated this year, for a $1 million project to upgrade Caboolture High’s skills development and training facilities.”

Mr Ryan said he was also particularly pleased to see security about to be upgraded at Morayfield State School, with funding for a school security fence.

“I recently visited Morayfield State School and discussed with Principal Thompson the need for a secure fence around the school.

“I’m so excited to announce that the full $506,000 cost of that security fence has been allocated in this year’s budget.”

  • $283,000 at Caboolture East State School to refurbish classrooms in Block 2
