Browns Plains and Flagstone State Schools are set to receive $200,000 in funding to refurbish their schools.
Member for Logan Linus Power announced the maintenance funding for the two local schools on September 30.
Browns Plains State School will use the funds to improve their modular buildings, while the Flagstone State School would be improving their teaching block.
Mr Power said Logan schools would share in the $1.1 million state government investment in state school maintenance for improvements for their classrooms and other facilities.
“We want our state school students to have the best possible classrooms to make the most of their education,” he said.
“This funding is part of our $667 million school infrastructure program and will help our state schools stay on top of maintenance needs and ensure students have access to quality education facilities.”
Browns Plains principal Andrew Beattie said the funding would allow four additional and flexible learning spaces that housed the latest integrated technologies.
“This additional funding provided by the state government has allowed us to create state of the art facilities conducive to the needs of 21st century learners,” he said.
“As a school would not have been able to provide such high quality learning environments without this extra support.”
Mr Power said every year principals and condition assessors worked together to prioritise school maintenance projects for local schools.
“Our school maintenance program is not only building better schools in Logan but also providing valuable jobs for tradies and training opportunities for apprentices,” he said.
“At least 10 per cent of all maintenance work carried out on state schools will be done by apprentices ensuring we continue to develop skills locally.”
