FROM THE MAYOR’S DESK

Central and North Burnett Times - - VOICE OF THE BURNETT -

WITH so many school awards nights hap­pen­ing, and another school year ended, it must be very sat­is­fy­ing for teach­ers and par­ents to see the great re­sult from their ef­forts. Con­grat­u­la­tions also to the stu­dents for their ef­forts and achieve­ments.

I at­tended the awards night for the PCYC Cadets in Biggen­den re­cently and the level of train­ing there, and the con­fi­dence and pos­i­tive out­look from the young peo­ple in­volved is a clear in­di­ca­tion that Moira Thomp­son and her band of lead­ers are achiev­ing the right re­sult.

Even though the whole of the North Bur­nett has not re­ceived rain, those who have are see­ing some ben­e­fits al­ready.

Follow up rain is very nec­es­sary to see the full im­pact and we are still a long way from hav­ing the drought bro­ken.

I was in­vited by the Mayor of the South Bur­nett to join a tour of the new Well­camp Air­port at Toowoomba on Mon­day, to­gether with David Wiskar and Rob Radel, and a group from Kin­garoy. It was a tremen­dous ex­am­ple of pri­vate en­ter­prise work­ing for the ben­e­fit of this great coun­try. The pos­si­bil­i­ties are far reach­ing and need the support and in­volve­ment of all in­dus­tries who are look­ing to utilise air trans­port.

Mean­while, I wish every­body a very happy Christ­mas and a suc­cess­ful New Year.

– Mayor Don Waugh
