Our advocacy on securing an Advanced Manufacturing Unit for Sunshine Beach State High School has continued with a letter to the Queensland Minister for Education followed by a recent meeting with Minister Grace and senior department staff.

In response, the Minister for Education has provided the following in italics:

In relation to an Advanced Manufacturing Unit for Sunshine Beach State High School, as advised in my response to Question on Notice 791 tabled on 14 July 2023, the Master Plan for Sunshine Beach State High School, completed in October 2022, was developed to guide and inform future infrastructure planning.

I am pleased to advise that in early 2024, the department will commence pre-construction planning for an Advanced Manufacturing Unit at Sunshine Beach State High School, in preparation for potential future funding.

We will continue to update the community as this via social media and Noosa 360. As per our Noosa 360 August update, the importance of ensuring funds are available for this in the next budget is key.

Please see our previous Noosa 360 update on this, which include Sandy’s ‘Question without Notice’ that the Minister references in her response, at www.sandybolton.com/sunshine-beach-state-high-school-advanced-manufacturing-unit-august-2023
