Fight for school goes on
BARGARA parents campaigning for a high school in the coastal town are not giving up the fight, despite having their proposal rejected.
Member for Burnett Rob Messenger quoted Bargara resident Cat Baumann when he lodged a question on notice in parliament yesterday.
“Mrs Baumann stated, ‘Bargara’s population has fast reached over 12,000, an increase of 7000 in eight years, and is increasing on a weekly, if not daily, basis’,” he said.
The question asked Education Minister Geoff Wilson to tell residents when they could expect a high school.
Education Queensland has repeatedly rejected the need for a new high school. But the Wide Bay-Burnett Regional Plan released by the government just over two weeks ago flagged the need for a high school in Bargara.
