Mansfield State High School cruise into 2022 with a new set of wheels

Mansfield State High P&C school has been awarded a Stronger Communities Grant by Federal Member for Bonner Ross Vasta MP to purchase a new golf cart.

Mr Vasta met with the Principal Karen Tanks and President of the P&C Phil Reeves to discuss how this federal funding will benefit the students at Mansfield State High School.

“It’s great to work alongside Mansfield State High School P&C to support the school community,” Mr Vasta said.

“The golf cart will service sporting events and allow for staff to more readily assist students if they are injured. It will also be used to help transport food stock between multiple canteens, which means canteen staff will no longer have to push a trolley by hand to replenish stock.”

Principal of Mansfield State High School Karen Tanks expressed her gratitude for Mr Vasta’s support of the school and said the funding for the cart will make a huge difference to students and staff.

“This funding will provide so many opportunities for the school. By purchasing a golf cart to replace our current food cart, food stock will be delivered more quickly between canteens which means canteen staff can more readily respond to student’s needs,”

“The golf cart can also be used to help out at sporting events if a student gets injured and needs to be transported safely and efficiently, as well as at open days and other events throughout the school year.”

Mr Vasta said the Stronger Communities Grants Program is supporting communities right across Bonner and delivering positive social outcomes to benefit local residents.
