2/08/2013
​Member for Brisbane Central, Robert Cavallucci, present student of the week award.

​It was announced last week by  State Member for Brisbane Central, Robert Cavallucci that the Queensland Health building on Water Street was in the process of being handed back to Education Queensland for use by the school. This  is a great outcome for our school, and would have not been possible if not for the hard work on part of our Reunification Group, led by Karyn Wernham, and supported by our P&C President,  Paul Wilson and Secretary, Alyson Fenton. Our sincere thanks also goes to Robert Cavallucci, for his partnership with the P&C ,  for  advocating for the return of the original site to the school . Robert’s  commitment to our school is greatly appreciated.

I am delighted to report that Education Queensland is in the process of transferring the 6000 square metre former Queensland Health property on Water Street. Early plans suggest five additional classrooms, grounds and other potential facilities to meet the education needs of the local community. Upon coming to office I immediately met with representatives from the school and the Minister for Education, to set out a plan and path to make the Brisbane Central State School reunification project a reality. I have been able to deliver, in our first year of Government, something that has been talked about for several years.

I look forward to working alongside the school and the Minister, in determining what ultimate outcomes might be achieved on the site and how we might deliver them. This is another great result for education in the inner city, in addition to our $160,000 for each school to clear their decade old maintenance backlog. There is more to be done, but we are making progress. My sincere thanks to the Brisbane Central State School P&C and Minster Langbroek for working with me on this important task.
