Governor opens new well-being centre
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.
