The Queensland Core Skills test results have been released and Kilcoy State High School is proud to announce that four of their Year 12 students received an A on their QCE. An A result represents students who have achieved in the top 5% of the state. The school has also a 100% QCE attainment for their students. The excellent results reflect the talent and hard work our their students, the support of their teachers, and the guidance and encouragement of parents.
I would like to express my appreciation of the organisation of the Focus on Farmers event held at the Somerset Civic Centre. The event was well attended and very informative. Congratulations to all those who were involved. Feedback obtained from the event recorded the gratitude felt by many who attended the evening.
It was reported in the Sunday Mail through a research project undertaken by Queensland’s Bond University, that Somerset Regional Council is in the top ten most unaffordable housing LG area. Cost of housing weighed against income, size of housing and housing stress. Kilcoy Interagency decided to form a sub-committee to address this issue.
A severe weather event which occurred on Saturday 17 November caused major damage to buildings, fences, fallen and standing trees, vehicles and some residents also reported livestock loss. The severe weather event caused damage at Gregors Creek, Highwood Lane, Sheep Station Creek and Mt Kilcoy localities. Due to the after effects of the storm on our property, I offered my apologies for not attending the Kilcoy Junior MX SEQ Series, Zion Lutheran Church Minden 140th Anniversary, Traffic Safety Advisory Committee Meeting, Minden State School Christmas Carnival and Kilcoy District Historical Society 20th Birthday Bash.
