EMOTIONS could disrupt any message sent out about the dispute over North St.
The biggest issue is Isis High could lose one of the most attractive programs in its curriculum.
In an ideal world, Isis High (or the Department of Education) would have endless funds and be in a position to purchase the land from the council.
This would then put the school in a position to market itself as a school with one of the more unique programs in the region: a series of agricultural classes tailored to local needs and taught by local experts, which utilises strong partnerships with community groups (in this case, the Fruit and Vegetable Growers’ Association).
As bad as that is, Childers is in dire need of a Men’s Shed, and the message must be clear that there is absolutely no opposition to the association.
Men’s Sheds have become an important institution in towns across the country as it has gone some way to addressing the male population’s mental health issues - which do exist, but are not talked about.
This is purely about the land.
Many people have their own opinion about this issue, and every single one of those people must contact the council with their view - good or bad.
Phone the council on 1300 883 699 or go to bundaberg.qld.gov.au before May 29 to have your say.
