Murgon State High School’s multi-million dollar hall was declared officially open by Queensland Premier, Annastacia Palaszczuk, on a recent visit to the region.

Minister for Education, Grace Grace, was overjoyed to see the project finally come to fruition.

The project welcomed a new multi-purpose hall and administration building for the high school.

Principal Simon Cotton also welcomed notable past alumni, former rugby league superstar and Deadly Choices ambassador Steve Renouf, Cherbourg Mayor Elvie, South Burnett Mayor Brett Otto, and respected Elder, Uncle Eric Law.

“It’s a good school going great,” Mr Cotton said.

Murgon State High alumnus and South Burnett Mayor Otto declared the hall as the ‘best in the region’.

Hon. Grace Grace was excited to meet with both Murgon State High School and Cherbourg State School students during her visit with the Premier last Wednesday, 10 November.
