Premier visits Busselton
Premier Mark McGowan visited Busselton on Friday unveiling $470,000 for Busselton Health Campus and $600,000 for Busselton Senior High School.
The funding comes from a WA government maintenance initiative delivering $200 million to schools and $90 million to hospitals.
Mr McGowan said WA was the only state reducing debt and was using tax payer’s money to maximise employment with targeted investment.
“One of the things we’ve been very keen to do is use our good financial management to create jobs,” he said.
“Throughout these communities you’ll see in all health services and schools of the South West important maintenance upgrades occurring.
“We want our people to have the best of health care and education and also we want to create jobs. When you do this maintenance work its labour intensive and it means local small businesses get the contracts.”
During a tour of Busselton Senior High School he spoke to students about work ethic and overlooked a year nine Mathematics lesson.
The Premier also discussed the push for a new terminal at Busselton Margaret River Regional Airport, palliative care funding, preliminary works on the dangerous stretch of Bussell Highway between Capel and Busselton and youth mental health.
