Seems like someone’s getting a little defensive. After the kerfuffle earlier today over the state of public schools, Chris Bourke wants to remind us of all the wonderful things going on in ACT schools right now.
Local primary and high schools are being upgraded, Malkara School is getting a swimming pool, Canberra College is getting a Performance Arts centre, and $2.3 million worth of fake grass is being given to five different schools.
Bourke’s also reminding us of plans to spend almost $13 million on reopening the closed-down Taylor Primary School by the start of 2014.
And you can’t expect him not to throw in one final dig at Steve Dozspot: “Our school infrastructure is under continual audit to prioritize and plan capital works.“
