Seven Hills State School
|Speaking to students at Seven Hills State School|
I was proud to visit Seven Hills State School to attend the Student Leadership Ceremony with Di Farmer MP, State Member for Bulimba and Cr Shayne Sutton of the Morningside Ward. We watched fourteen very brave Year 7 students pitch their campaign ideas to the entire school community. Di, Shayne and I were all very impressed with their speeches and we look forward to congratulating the new school leaders in the coming days.
We also joined the staff and school captain candidates in the new library for morning tea. This terrific new space was funded under the Government’s Building the Education Revolution Program.
Seven Hills State School is also looking forward to the completion of their new Kindy, which Di Farmer worked hard to secure funding as part of the Queensland Government’s Flying Start program.

Whites Hill State College
On Wednesday, I visited Whites Hill State College with Steve Kilburn MP, State Member for Chatsworth and the Hon Cameron Dick MP, State Member for Greenslopes. Steve, Cameron and I enjoyed meeting this year’s schools leaders and visiting the new Interactive Learning Centre (ILC). The $3 million ILC was funded under the Government’s BER program and provides the students with state–of-the-art IT, music, drama and sound production facilities.
I would also like to congratulate the school on their success in securing a grant from the National Solar School Program. Whites Hill State College joins a number of other schools on the Southside that have received funding to implement a range of energy efficiency measures and reduce their future carbon footprint.
