LNP to move towards a collocated high school at James Cook Uni

LNP Leader Campbell Newman today pledged $500,000 for a study into establishing a collocated high school at James Cook University.

Mr Newman said the LNP was strongly committed to making sure Queensland had a world-class education system.

“The LNP wants Queensland school children to excel and make the most of their education,” Mr Newman said.

“As part of our commitment to science and technology, an LNP government will extend linkages between our world-class universities and our secondary schools.

“We will fund a study to scope and build the business case to establish a co-located high school at James Cook University.

“This will include opportunities for regional and rural students to also access the facility.”

Mr Newman said the feasibility study would focus on partnership opportunities with James Cook University because the university had indicated support for the project. The LNP will consider similar options in other willing universities based on this work.

“An LNP government is committed to ensuring our schools, universities and TAFE colleges and institutes deliver the skills to give Queenslanders a real edge in globally-competitive industries.

“The LNP will revitalise frontline services and deliver better education for Queensland students.

“It’s time for change. It’s time to get Queensland back on track,” Mr Newman said.
