CQ NRL Bid Team talk with school

REPRESENTATIVES of Rockhampton State High School and the CQ NRL Bid Team held a "constructive meeting" on Monday and are confident they can work together in the future.

Days after members of the school community were left disappointed about an apparent lack of consultation to use part of the school site for a new stadium, P&C president Peter Foxwell said he was happy to work with the bid team and welcomed further dialogue.

"We had a good meeting ... very constructive," Mr Foxwell said.

Last week Queensland Premier Anna Bligh pledged $500,000 for a preliminary feasibility study into building a $140 million stadium near the Rockhampton Showgrounds in time for the 2015 NRL premiership season.

CQ NRL Bid CEO Denis Keeffe said it was clear everyone at the meeting supported having an NRL team in CQ.

"I think it went well.

"We sat around the table and talked about what was happening."

He said rather than "misinformation, rumour and innuendo" the bid team was able to provide school representatives with an update on the plans, processes and also outline the benefits it saw for the school and wider community.

Keeffe reiterated the bid team's desire not to have anyone "disadvantaged".

"We are working on solutions to all the issues," he said.

"We recognise and applaud the fact that the RSHS representatives are good people who are obviously passionate about their school."

He was in Brisbane yesterday to meet with representatives of Populous, the company which the government said it would engage to undertake the feasibility study.
