BUNDABERG Regional Council says it’s delighted to help Gin Gin State High School with its agriculture program.
The council has agreed to allow the school to utilise 80ha of land adjacent to the school for agricultural education and training purposes.
The council governance spokesman David Batt said the property was formerly being used for grazing purposes under a Permit to Occupy issued to a local resident.
“The resident surrendered his Permit to Occupy in April this year making the way clear for the high school to progress its plans,” he said.
“The school wishes to introduce a Certificate II in Agriculture to its vocational education curriculum and the land is an important component in its plans, which will also see the introduction of facets of beef production.”
