From the Desk Of Annastacia Palaszczuk:
The 2023-34 State budget is all about delivering cost-of-living relief to local families. A budget is never about numbers, they’re about people.
That’s why we’re delivering a $550 electricity rebate to every Queensland household. If you’re a concession card holder you may be eligible for more than $1000 in electricity rebates.
We’re also delivering 15 hours of free kindergarten a week for all Queensland families. This will save families $4600 a year on average.
These are only some of the concessions and rebates the Queensland Government is offering to deal with national cost-of-living pressures.

I’m proud to announce we’re investing a further $8 million for new buildings at Glenala State high and a further $5.6 million for additional learning spaces at Serviceton South State School.
We’re also delivering over $3.6 million to our local schools for upgrades to classrooms, tuckshops, and maintenance, including upgrades to the Seniors School Kitchen at Forest Lake State High School.
