Education and well maintained facilities
The topic of education has been much in the media lately with discussions of TAFE courses versus University courses and where school funding should come from for private schools. No matter what the source or the pathway, a good grounding in education helps set up life parameters, so it is important that all levels of education have access to the best of teachers, resources and facilities.
Building Better Schools in South Australia is aiming to do just that for many of our high schools and primary schools. Refurbishment or replacements for classrooms, laboratories, landscaping, the creation of outdoor teaching areas, all add more to the concept that education is valued in our society and our students should have the best access possible.
Students going through the system today are going to face a much different world than those currently in the workforce. New careers and job pathways are still to be created especially for today’s youngest students. STEM courses in schools are already preparing them. How appropriate is it then that the facilities reflect this?
Over the years, Brimblecombe Builders have played a part in education construction with projects ranging from tertiary institutions, right down to Child Care Centres as part of the BER and as an individual contractor in both public and private schools. Some of these are detailed in the Education sector of our site.
