NEW DELIVERY: Equipment for new high school

FINAL preparations for Calliope State High School are coming together with the delivery of a new mower and gardening equipment yesterday.

Member for Gladstone Glenn Butcher joined principal Peter Stansfield and Small Motor Service owner Maurice Paterson at the $60 million school.

“Eighty per cent of this build for this high school is delivered by local workforce,” Mr Butcher said.

“Now local businesses are getting a piece of the pie.”

Mr Stansfield said some of the 140 students enrolled had parents working on the school.

“It’s a real way to integrate and be a part of that community,” Mr Stansfield said.

Mr Paterson said they were excited to be in partnership with building contractor Paynters and the school.

“We hope to build a strong relationship with Peter and his staff here,” Mr Paterson said.
