Big fans of big fans at Isis High

Isis Town and Country - - News -

WITH a di­am­e­ter mea­sur­ing 5.5m, you would ex­pect Isis Dis­trict State High School’s new power foil fans to gen­er­ate enough noise to be a se­ri­ous dis­trac­tion to stu­dents, or lift the roof clean off the sta­dium.

The mas­sive fans were in­stalled ear­lier this week, and to the sur­prise of deputy prin­ci­pal Andy Davey and P&C pres­i­dent San­dra Webb, they do nei­ther. “This is amaz­ing,” Mrs Webb said.

“This is used widely by the com­mu­nity. Net­ball, tae kwon do and few oth­ers use it. We had a lot of com­mu­nity sup­port and it’s now more us­able.”

Air away con­trac­tors Jai Orgill and Thad Steinohrt have in­stalled sev­eral power foil fans across schools in Queens­land.

Mr Davey said the in­stal­la­tion would make con­di­tions much more com­fort­able for stu­dents. He thanked the P&C for their pur­suit of the project.

He said the school had pre­vi­ously costed the project but it was too ex­pen­sive to fund it­self.

Bur­nett MP Stephen Bennett an­nounced $29,700 for the project in Jan­uary.
