Students and staff at The Glennie School for in Toowoomba have celebrated the official opening of their new hospitality training centre recently.
Member for Toowoomba North, Kerry Shine said the new centre was a major asset for the school community.
“The hospitality centre offers an excellent training facility for hospitality students,” Mr Shine said. “It has a commercial training kitchen containing a barista-style coffee machine, and an industrial oven, and the neighbouring classroom can double as a function room for school events.
“The hospitality students are putting it to good use – they helped cater for the Glennie Foundation cocktail party and have prepared morning tea for the official opening.”
The State Government contributed $250,000 in capital assistance funding to the project, adding to the $850,000 raised by the school.
The Member for Toowoomba North represented the Minister for Education and Training Geoff Wilson at the opening. Mr Wilson said the Queensland Government was pleased to help support the school’s ongoing development.
“Over the past five years, The Glennie School (an Anglican school for girls) has received more than $5.6 million in recurrent funding and $1.9 million in capital assistance from the State Government.”
