Mr HOWARTH (Petrie) (13:53): Deception Bay is home to many a great Aussie battler—hardworking, salt-of-the-earth folk and plenty of families with challenges but also with great opportunities. Increasingly sought for its beach-side locale, Deception Bay has undergone significant rejuvenation and is earmarked for further development. The local high school nurtures more than 700 students. It has a reputation for outstanding academic, sporting and cultural achievement and is celebrating its 25th year. Core values of belonging, integrity, aspiration and persistence underscore a strong and vibrant learning culture and make Deception Bay State High School a popular choice. It adopts a flexible and inclusive approach to learning, emphasises mutual trust and works closely with families to achieve the best outcomes for each of its students. The school claims many great achievements, but it has a new reason to be proud, having been named one of the 20 best 2015 Top Gains high schools for South-East Queensland. This is a significant achievement. Well done to the staff and leaders at Deception Bay State High School. I would love to know your secrets and will be out to see you soon. Congratulations on a great 2015 and keep up the great work.
