School moves for­ward af­ter fire

Gatton Star - - NEWS -

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.
