Preliminary drawings were revealed last week at two meetings, one for Redcliffs Park neighbours organised by the Ministry of Education, and one organised for the wider community by the school. At the first meeting, architect Hugh Tennent and MoE lead case manager David Hobern spoke Darren Fidler to park neighbours about work that had been done to mitigate the impact on neighbours' views. The drawings show the school buildings tucked into higher ground on the south-west corner of the site next to Main Rd, with car parking further along towards Beachville Rd. Friends of Redcliffs Park spokesman Chris Doudney said he wasn't surprised they had STYLE: A preliminary drawing of the Main Rd entrance to the new Redcliffs School built on that section as it was “above flood level” on higher ground. Asked if the designs showed the ministry was trying to mitigate the effects on neighbours, Mr Doudney said: “I think they have a good architect.’’ He said he wasn't against the school being built there. “If it wasn’t a park and if the school didn’t have a better place I would welcome a school in that location; I’m not antischool, I'm just anti taking our park when the ministry has never given a reasonable reason for abandoning the school – ever. And that’s the key issue.’’ Friends of Redcliffs Park have sent a 200-signature petition to Parliament in a last-ditch bid to return the school to its former Main Rd site. The petition will be considered by the Education and Workforce Select Committee this month. Board of trustees chairman Darren Fidler said were “a lot of emotions in the room,’’ at the meeting for neighbours but he thought the opportunity to hear from the architect and the ministry had been well received. •Turn to page 7 •Fossils unearthed, p4 & p5 Star Performers ANOTHER VERY HAPPY VENDOR “It took a lot of courage after 38-years in the home I loved to make the decision to sell.
