    Wilsonton State High welcomes new hall

    Education Minister Grace Grace has today officially opened Wilsonton State High School’s new $6.3 million hall.

    Ms Grace said the opening of the hall, handed over to the school by builder Wiley & Co in February this year, was already being credited with transforming the school culture.

    “Wilsonton State High School has never had a hall before, and assemblies and other events have been held in an undercover area,” Ms Grace said.

    “Now the school’s graduation ceremony and many other school events can be held in a proper hall.

    “It’s already been utilised by the school community, with Wilsonton’s first ever school musical held at the hall in May.

    “What a fantastic addition to an already very impressive school.”

    Ms Grace said the hall incorporated a multi-purpose sports court, a stage area which can be closed off for use while the court is in action, storage rooms, amenities and change rooms, kitchen facilities, a kinesiology room and staff room.

    “The Palaszczuk Government is delighted to have been able to deliver this project under the $200 million Advancing Queensland Schools (AQS) program,” Ms Grace said. 

    “It’s part of our shared commitment to delivering quality education for all young Queenslanders.

    “The Government is committed to providing world-class facilities for all students.”

    Wilsonton State High School Principal Marcus Jones said the hall was proving a huge asset to the school.

    “The difference this has made to the whole culture of the school just can’t be overstated,” Mr Jones said. 

    “Already this auditorium has increased the opportunities on offer for students.

    “Wilsonton State High School now has the facilities to complement the great teaching and learning that occurs here each and every day.”
