IN JUST two years the Calliope community could have gone from heart break high to getting the school they have been after with an announcement expected today on the future of Calliope State High School.

Queensland premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and Education minister Kate Jones will be at Calliope Primary School at midday to reveal the government's plan for the proposed site.

It was only two years ago that then Queensland education minister John-Paul Langbroek endorsed selling the parcel of land triggering a community backlash.

The site went to auction but was never sold.

Going into the 2015 election, Labor candidate Glenn Butcher pledged to save the land for a high school.

Labor won the election and the site was taken off the market.

Today could mark a complete turn around for the Calliope community in just two years.
