Schools across Western Queensland will share in over $7.3 million worth of new state funding.
Several state schools across Mount Isa, Charters Towers and Hughenden will be boosted with this funding, supporting local construction jobs.
Education Minister Grace Grace said the funding would help school communities and local tradies.
"It's great to Hughenden State School receiving $200,000 to refurbish the science room in C Block and Mount Isa Special School getting a $300,000 upgrade to their Block B amenities," Ms Grace said.
"Charters Towers State High School will receive a refurbishment to the library while Mornington Island State School will see a $300,000 boost to refurbish the admin building."
Ms Grace said the new funding would be a big job generator at a time when needed.
"We always encourage our schools to engage local tradespeople to complete maintenance works and smaller jobs in schools," she said.
"Interested tradies and contractors should contact the Business Manager in schools located in their local area.
"Contractors and tradies who want to be notified of opportunities for any future tender processes for larger projects can register on the Queensland Government QTender website."
Ms Grace said they were also rolling out the $477m Cooler Cleaner Schools Program and over 650 schools would benefit from air conditioning installations in 10,000 classrooms.
"The program will also provide an additional $71 million over three years to create a virtual solar farm on school rooftops that will be used to power these additional air conditioners across the state," she said.
However no schools in the North West have been included on this program up to the most recent February round of funding.
