A hinterland school that has been providing education to students for more than 60 years is celebrating the opening of its newest facility.

The $11.9 million hall was officially opened this week at the Noosa District State High School (NDSHS) Pomona Campus.

The hall includes a performance stage, storage and staff rooms, kinesiology lab/gym, kitchen kiosk, foyer, office, backstage area and other amenities.

There are also 52 new car parks, a fire system with two holding tanks and electrical system.

Independent Member for Noosa Sandy Bolton joined school principal Stacy Wilmore, students and staff for the opening.

“Noosa District State High School is a vital part of our community and will soon be celebrating 61 years of educating our children, including my own,” Ms Bolton said.

“It is essential that current and future students have access to modern, well-equipped facilities to support their learning and development.

“The uses are vast, from school assemblies, performances, sports and events to community gatherings.

“This is a fantastic achievement and addition to our beautiful Noosa countryside.”

NDSHS, via its school budget and P&C, contributed $121,000 towards covered walkways and pathways around the building as well as a retractable seating storage alcove.

“Special thanks to principal Stacy, the P&C and, most of all, our students. You are our future and I hope you love this hall as much as we do.”
