Headmaster's Cottage Deck

Headmaster's Cottage Deck, built by BAPA volunteers

Headmaster's Cottage Deck

This deck was made possible by a grant of $10,000 from the Gambling Community Benefit Fund and a community grant of $2000 from the Scenic Rim Regional Council for the disabled toilet facility.

Hundreds of hours have been donated by a small team of volunteers; headed by Ron Doonan (alias Ken as per the Hinterlander), a local builder

Any mistakes were made by volunteers not RON!!
