Community organises march to protest school land sale

COMMUNITY members against the sale of land set aside for a high school in Calliope will hold a protest march on July 28.

Protesters are fighting the government after their petition protesting the sale was tabled in state parliament.

Organisers are hoping hundreds will join in the march from 3.30pm at Hazelbrook Park, up Morris Ave to Don Cameron Drive.

The 14.2ha site was put up for auction in May but didn't sell. It remains on the market.

Campaigner Lynda Ninness said the sale needed to be stopped for the future of children in the Calliope area.

 "The schools in town are increasingly full and there's so much congestion on the roads already," she said.

"We don't need more kids being bussed in and out."
