Mayor supports call for school
TWEED Mayor Gary Bagnall has thrown his support behind a residents' campaign for a high school to be built at Pottsville.
Cr Bagnall has revealed that at the first council meeting of the year, he will call on Tweed State MP Geoff Provest to "honour his longstanding election promise to deliver" the high school.
He also wants Mr Provest to provide a written report by the end of this month advising construction and commencement dates, a timetable for construction and the completion and opening dates.
Cr Bagnall was sparked into action by the front page story in the Tweed Daily News on Wednesday reporting the community had relaunched its campaign for the high school in the lead-up to the State Election.
The council has previously supported the high school reserving land at Seabreeze Estate.
Mr Provest has said Pottsville would get a high school but not now as it would be detrimental to existing local high schools under current enrolment figures.
