Brisbane Container Business Firm Supports Local School



Gateway Container Sales supports the Wooloowin State School Fete with secure storage solution.

Wooloowin State School turned 100 on the 15th September and Gateway Container Sales was there to help them celebrate. With such an important occasion, the school was in need of some extra storage space.


Gateway Container Sales provided a twenty foot container to the school for a week - free of charge. This additional space was exactly what the school required to safely store tables, chairs and school equipment during their refurbishment and school gala. Space that came in handy when the school band needed the room to perform indoors to their crowd of eager fans.


"We were happy to provide the container to the school for free, as we know how hard it can be to keep items safe during refurbishments. As a family owned business, Gateway often lends a hand to the organisations helping kids and families of our local communities," said Roy Finnegan, Gateway Container Sales & Hire.


The gala, which lasted three days, was host to past and present students and staff who came from around the region to share their memories of the last 100 years of education at the school.  Parents and students were able to enjoy rides, taste fresh produce and yummy treats from the school garden and wide variety of homemade sweets and smoothies. Student’s could test their aim with a wet sponge (the principal was a good sport and acted as the target) or test their bravery in the haunted house.


A special book was also available that celebrated the schools' 100 years of history. A wonderful memento for students and families to treasure and reminisce about their time at the school.
