New hall complete

CANNONVALE State School and the Whitsundays community will soon benefit from the new multi-purpose hall now completed at the school.

Tomorrow's Anzac Day Parade will be the first test run for the $2 million hall which seats 600 people and is fully equipped with a basketball court (full-length), netball court, two volley ball courts, a technology /science room , kitchen and amenities.

The project, which has taken six months to complete, was funded as part of the Federal Government's Building the Education Revolution (BER) and was delivered to the school and community through Education Queensland.

Member for Whitsunday Jan Jarratt inspected the new building on Monday and is very excited about the prospects the hall holds for Whitsunday residents.

“From a community point of view, it's a real milestone for the Whitsundays,” she said.

School Principal Leigh Robinson was equally energized by the benefits of the new hall.

“The school hall is a much needed resource and will be able to be utilised for both sporting and cultural functions,” she said.

The hall will be available for use by community groups outside of school hours.
