New facilities at Ferny Hills State School will bring benefits to students for years to come, according to Senator for Queensland Mark Furner.

 Mr Furner last week officially opened a new resource centre and refurbished multipurpose hall at the school.

The projects were funded through an investment of $3.2 million from the Federal Government’s Building the Education Revolution program.

Senator Furner said the initiative was “the single biggest investment in Australian schools in our history”, resulting in libraries, science labs, classrooms and multipurpose halls being built across the country.

“Projects like the new resource centre and refurbished multipurpose hall at Ferny Hills State School are making a real difference by improving the learning environment for our children,” he said.
