Nanango Electorate Election Commitment - Deb will secure new hall for Kilcoy State High School

30th September 2020

LNP Member for Nanango Deb Frecklington will secure funding for a proper school hall for Kilcoy State High School if the LNP wins government at the state election.

Mrs Frecklington said she had fought on behalf of the school community for several years to secure the funding, but the calls have not been heard by the Palaszczuk Labor Government.

“Kilcoy State High is a fantastic place to learn, but a new school hall has been needed for a long time,” Mrs Frecklington said.

“While the school has a covered outdoor learning area, it isn’t suitable for important ceremonies and events, and there are no other halls in the Kilcoy region with the required seating capacity.

“It really is unacceptable that a high school of this size doesn’t have an enclosed school hall with seating and modern facilities.

“More than 400 students attend Kilcoy SHS and the number keeps growing, so we need to get this project started now.

“The Kilcoy SHS P&C identified this project back in 2013 and I am pleased to support them in their push for better facilities.

“If the LNP wins the next election and forms government, we will build a $5.5m hall for Kilcoy State High School.

“The LNP will invest in the education of our kids and invest in our school buildings,” Deb said.
