Western Times - - BEST OF THE WEST -

QUEENS­LAND Gov­er­nor Paul de Jersey was in St Ge­orge last week at­tend­ing the open­ing of the Health and Well­be­ing Cen­tre at St Ge­orge State High School.

In his first of­fi­cial visit to St Ge­orge, Gov­er­nor Paul de Jersey said he greatly en­joyed vis­it­ing ru­ral and re­gional schools through­out the state as they were the back­bone of towns. At the open­ing of the well-be­ing cen­tre, the Gov­er­nor said the build­ing rep­re­sented the school’s motto.

“‘To­gether we achieve’ re­ally epit­o­mises this fa­cil­ity. It’s very im­pres­sive,” he said.

Prin­ci­pal Doug Wat­son said the open­ing was a mighty step for the school.

“To­day marks a sig­nif­i­cant mo­ment. It is our moral im­per­a­tive to en­sure ev­ery child reaches their best,” he said.

The build­ing will house guid­ance of­fi­cer An­nette Woodrow, com­mu­nity ed­u­ca­tion coun­sel­lor Joy Weather­all, youth sup­port co-or­di­na­tor Sarah Scriven, chap­lain Si­mon Te­u­nis and schoo nurse Angie Gorry.
