STRATHPINE STATE SCHOOL STUDENTS CONTRIBUTE TO QUEENSLAND VISION

20/08/2013

Students from Strathpine State School have had their say towards The Queensland Plan, and Member for Pine Rivers, Mr Seath Holswich MP, is urging all Pine Rivers residents to make their voice heard before 30th August.

Strathpine State School students participated in the statewide Primary School Postcard Competition, where students had the opportunity to create their vision of the Queensland of the future.

Mr Holswich met this morning with the year level winners of the competition, whose entries now go on to compete against students from throughout the state.

"This competition has given students from around the state a unique opportunity to contribute to a vision for our great state's future," Mr Holswich said.

"The Queensland Plan is a once in a generation opportunity to be a part of plotting Queensland's future."

Strathpine State School student suggestions included more green space and public waterways, ensuring our beaches are the best in Australia and building enough houses and units to cope with our growing population.

Statewide consultation for The Queensland Plan concludes on 30th August.

"Around 33,000 Queenslanders have had their say so far, and I would encourage all Pine Rivers residents to complete the survey and communicate the issues that are important to them."

"Once completed, The Queensland Plan will assist government, business and community with building a better Queensland and for our community to be able to build a better Pine Rivers."
