School moves forward after fire
POLICE are calling on the public’s help to identify the culprits behind the fire at Laidley State High School.
The fire, on Easter Sunday, damaged two art classrooms and two business classrooms were smoke affected.
Since the fire, Laidley State High School has worked hard to return the students’ schedules back to normal.
In a letter to parents, principal Michael Clarkson said plans were under way for a temporary building to be brought onsite to replace the lost classroom capacity.
He said timetable changes had been made to relocate Art and Business classes elsewhere on the school grounds to minimise the impact on learning.
“The extent of loss or damage of student and teacher work is not yet known,” he said in the letter.
“Students and parents should be reassured that while the loss of student work is frustrating and disappointing, it will not have an impact on student academic results.”
Anyone with information on the fire can phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or Laidley Police on 5466 8000.
