Growing secondary school enrolment demand in Calliope (approximately 20 kilometres south-west of Gladstone) is not adequately catered for, with many students required to travel to Gladstone high schools. Furthermore, state secondary schools in Gladstone are nearing capacity.


The objective of the proposal is to improve access to secondary schooling by delivering a new state high school in Calliope, as supported by commitment made by the Premier and Minister for Education in January 2016.
