Local hall renewed through job creation program
Under the Skilling Queenslanders for Work program, the Coorparoo School of Arts will undergo major renovations, thanks to a recent grant from the Palaszczuk Labor Government.
“The over $500,000 grant represents a creation of jobs for people who have been long term unemployed, and will help them learn the skills to achieve employment,” said Joe Kelly, the Member for Greenslopes.
“Career Employment Australia provides the skills and training for long term and meaningful employment”.
Career Employment Australia have partnered with the School of Arts to deliver much needed renovations to the hall. The organisation, based in Coorparoo, provide support and training for long term unemployed and disadvantaged job seekers.
The member for Greenslopes, Joe Kelly, has worked closely with the School of Arts committee to secure funding for the project.
“This grant is the culmination of three years of working closely with Joe”, said Ron Baker, the president of the committee.
“Joe has worked hard to secure this funding, which will see this beautiful hall restored to its former glory, as well as increasing access to the community.”
The renovations are set to include new bathrooms and kitchen, as well as restoring the timber floors and painting.
