Statement from the Deputy Mayor, Cr Leonie Nunn

“Council is determined to be a positive stakeholder in the future of the Longreach Pastoral College following todays announcement. We will work constructively with the project management office during the transition period and do our best to support those in our community who have the vision to take the facility into the future.

“The Longreach Pastoral College has been a vital part of our community for over 50 years. While we are disappointed by todays announcement, we are committed to being part of the solution, so that the facility can continue its tradition of service to our community.

“It’s a sad day, but we don’t have the time for outrage or indignation – we have to act in the best interests of our community. So we’ll be getting to work now, with anyone that wants to help us, to make sure our region gets the best possible outcome.
