more air conditioners in school

This petition had 1,246 supporters

this petition more so reference to Redbank Plains State School  QLD 4301 but also goes for all school in Queesland.

our schools don't  have enough air conditioners in our class rooms,

“Our P&C alone has raised money for the few we have ,Big fan in the hall that does nothing & fans in the class rooms with teachers having window's open ,The p&c would love to put air conditioning in our classrooms, but they have to pay $60,000 to upgrade the electricals, then $330,000 to buy units and get wired in but they cant help so we really need help from the government to get air conditioners .

“Imagine sitting in a classroom with 30 other people on a day where the temperature hit the high 30s. You wouldn't be comfortable. You would over heat and possibly [sic] get heat stroke. Why should our children have to suffer through this for eight hours a day?

“Having children in a comfortable environment will not only keep them happy but will promote a better learning environment.”

here in Queensland in summer we get up to 41 degrees with the humidity being the worse.

PS: same of the Goverment school's where built in 1987 so the electriacl power board all need to be upgraded why can't the Goverment help to upgraded them so air conditioners can go in the class room's .

am a mother how has a son epilepsy symptoms and can't attend school when its 39 + because the class rooms don't have air conditioners so i have to keep him home from school there for his miss class time.
