All Queensland schools will be cool by 2022
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.
