Creative students at Benowa State High School can celebrate the addition of a much-needed electronic piano to their Arts Department, thanks to Member for Surfers Paradise, John-Paul Langbroek.

 

Mr Langbroek said he was proud to gift the piano to Benowa State High School, which will assist the school in delivering a music program from which all students can benefit.

 

“It is important that our local schools are a vibrant hub for learning, where students have access to the resources they need to succeed - whether it be academically, in the arts, or sports,” he said.

 

“That’s why I am donating a piano, which was used by one of my children during his time at school, to assist in fostering the learning of our creative students.

 

“The piano will make an excellent addition to Benowa State High School’s flourishing Arts Department, where I had the pleasure of attending their school musical Zombie Prom last month.”

 

Mr Langbroek said that creating an environment in which all students can learn has always been a priority. 

 

“During my time as the Minister for Education, I was passionate about ensuring that schools had access to the resources and facilities their students and teachers required,” he said.

 

“I will continue to work within my capacity as Member for Surfers Paradise to assist schools in my electorate to deliver the best education possible for our local students.”

 

Bettianne Stuart, Head of Department for Arts at Benowa State High School said that the school is very thankful for John-Paul’s ongoing support.

 

“Musical equipment is very expensive and we always try to provide the best opportunities we can to our students so that we can foster their talents,” she said.

 

“The donation of a piano will assist our senior students in their performance assessments for Music Extension and Senior Studies, and also provide high quality sound to all our presentations throughout the year.”
