I strongly believe in equity of opportunity for all students. Whether it’s in Wilsonton, Rockville or Highfields, I want every student to realise their full potential.

I fought hard to secure the Highfields State Secondary College and a new school hall at Wilsonton State High School, but there’s still more work to do.

Across Toowoomba North, student numbers are continually growing. This requires long-term traffic management plans to be developed and first-class facilities which cater for changes in technology to be built, to give our kids every opportunity to succeed.

The LNP will support schools across Toowoomba North by decluttering the curriculum to focus on language, literacy and numeracy and by introducing a phonics screening trial to identify children with reading difficulties like dyslexia.
