Central Queensland News - - NEWS -

MEM­BER for Bur­dekin Dale Last has made his first school vis­its for the New Year, vis­it­ing three of his most western schools in the Bur­dekin elec­torate in Cler­mont last week.

Mr Last met with stu­dents from ev­ery school in Cler­mont, in­clud­ing both Cler­mont State High School and Cler­mont State Pri­mary School, as well as St Joseph’s Catholic Pri­mary School.

Mr Last pre­sented anti-bul­ly­ing “Bucket Books’’ to the stu­dents dur­ing his visit.

“Early last year I made a pledge to visit and do­nate anti-bul­ly­ing Bucket Books to all the schools within my elec­torate,” Mr Last said.

“Af­ter the elec­toral re­dis­tri­bu­tion I added al­most 20 more schools to my list to visit this year.

“I am pas­sion­ate about spread­ing the anti-bul­ly­ing mes­sage in our schools and this is one way I can help our stu­dents to man­age this in­sid­i­ous is­sue which is ex­tremely rel­e­vant at the mo­ment.

“Our schools play a vi­tal role in ed­u­cat­ing our fu­ture lead­ers and there is noth­ing I en­joy more than vis­it­ing our ru­ral schools to meet with staff and stu­dents.”
