Noticed the electronic sign outside Nanango State School in Drayton Street?
The school’s P&C had tried to get a Gambling Community Benefit Grant to erect the sign, but had no luck.
So the group approached the Heritage Nanango Community Fund to see if they could help with the project.
Heritage stumped up $10,000 and with a co-contribution from the school, the sign became a reality earlier this year.
Treasurer Ann Black said the P&C would like to thank Heritage Bank Nanango for sponsoring the sign.
“It will be the school’s way to instantly communicate with not only 500 students, staff and volunteers but also family members, as well as the wider community,” she said.
Everything from information about upcoming camps and parades to vital day-to-day school news is featured on the sign, which is updated regularly.
“In our area where phone and internet coverage can be limited, communication with families can prove difficult at times,” P&C President Leonie Legge said.
“To have this new sign that can be instantly updated with messages may be the only contact point between the school and community.”
