New bus shelter for Beaudesert’s St Mary’s

A new bus shelter for students St Mary’s Beaudesert has been completed.

The work was funded through an Australian Governments Local Schools Community Fund grant and the school.

Federal Member for Wright, Scott Buchholz recently visited St Mary’s to meet with Principal Kevin Billion and student leaders, before being shown the new shelter.

Mr Buchholz said it was great to see students benefit from the funding injection.

“I would often see the students, standing out the front of the school waiting to load up onto the bus.

“Unfortunately, there was little shelter in place previously, to provide protection from hot summer days or sudden downpours.

“It is great to see that in partnership with the Australian Government, St Mary’s have been able to construct this great new bus shelter and waiting area for students.”

The Federal government grant through the Local Schools Community Fund was worth $6,100.

Principal Kevin Billion said the community was extremely appreciative of the Government’s support to construct the new bus shelter facility for their students. 

“With the growing number of families with school aged children moving to the area seeking enrolment at St Mary’s, this new bus shelter will support the increasing number of children travelling to St Mary’s on the bus.
