Biddeston School kicking big goals
For a school of just under 50 students, Biddeston Primary sure is making a mighty big difference for its students and the school community.
Small but mighty Biddeston Primary School has crossed a number of big ticket items off the wish list thanks to a dedicated and hard working P&C and support from Toowoomba Regional Council.
“We are now enjoying a full-size basketball/netball court, bike track, handball courts and a brand-new enclosed learning area,” principal David Doogan said.
The new learning area is a hall-sized facility which previously never had walls and which the P&C pinpointed as a project several years ago and began working towards.
The official opening of the new space, complete with a mural featuring the words once written up on a whiteboard by long-time previous principal Sharon Wilson, was celebrated on Friday night at the school’s annual bush dance.
Mr Doogan said the P&C had managed to raise around $160,000 in recent years for the latest round of projects and he praised the work of Mel Patch, Ian Speed and the whole committee for their hard work.
“But the real heart of our school lies within the community and our students, the Biddeston kids,” Mr Doogan said.
