New year and new school upgrades
St Joseph’s Primary School continues revamp process
AFTER the addition of the new multi purpose stadium last year St Joseph’s Primary School in Gayndah received a new roof for its main school building.
St Joseph’s principal Ben Gray Both is excited to see the continual improvement of school grounds.
“The sports centre was our first phase of building a part of a master plan,” Mr Gray said.
“The administration building will be 100 years old in 2019 so we are getting close to that significant age and it’s a building that holds a significant place in the community for current and past students and parents.
“One that has operated in many different capacities.”
As well as the refurbished roof the building was given a new coat of paint.
“The idea behind the choice in colour for the paint was to get the Church, the administration building and the convent all matching, it his been quite a while since that has been the case,” Mr Gray said.
“With the support of the Parish Finance Council we were able to go ahead and replace the roof and hopefully the new terracotta tiles last another 100 years.”
Mr Gray also took the opportunity to let parents know enrolments for Prep are still available.
“We have a single stream prep class here with enrolments still available,” Mr Gray said.
“I think it’s significant having a dedicated class to preps with a class size of 10 or less students.”
