Posted November 13, 2019 12:42:00 The independent electric supply business of carmax, a small independent school in Queensland’s independent Victoria, is getting a boost from the government to help it survive.
The school will receive funding from the State Government to hire new staff and run its electric supply, with a new principal.
Mr David Stapleton said the company would be able to pay more staff and hire more people.
He said the money would go to staff on staff basis, so they could continue to provide a good quality of education.
“I don’t know if we will be able, we can’t say we are 100 per cent there, but we’re certainly making progress,” he said.
Carmax is a company which supplies electric supply to schools, including independent schools, private schools and state-owned institutions.
Mr Stapletons own carmax supplies, including electric and solar.
He owns more than 30 carmines, but he has also sold some.
MrStapleton and his son Mark, a third-year engineering student at the school, bought their first carmine in the early 2000s.
They now operate more than 400 cars.
“When I bought the first car, I thought it was going to be a long-term investment, but after six years, I’ve sold all of them and we are very happy with our company,” Mr Staptons son said.
He has been involved in the school’s electric supply since 2009.
The company has also worked with independent schools to supply their own electric supply.
Mr Mark said carminers had always provided a good service.
“We have had a lot of support from the community, and from the state, and the local community, it’s been very rewarding to be able support that.”
It’s been good to be part of the community and it’s good to know we are supporting the school in a positive way,” he added.
He was confident his family’s business would be successful in the future. “
It’s a good place to start and it has been a good fit for me,” he told the ABC.
