Southern Flinders Regional Sports Complex Hire
In 2006 the Gladstone High School prioritised the need to construct a school stadium/gymnasium, due to the age and rapidly deteriorating outdoor sporting facilities available within the Southern Flinders which adversely affects the school physical education curriculum, especially during extreme heat and inclement weather.
The Department of Education and Children’s Services (Gladstone High School and Gladstone Primary School), Northern Areas Council, St Joseph’s Parish School Gladstone, and the Ewart Oval Management Committee proposed to develop a multi activity sports stadium to meet the future educational, sporting and recreational needs of communities in the Southern Flinders region of South Australia.
