PARENTS have voiced their concerns about the position of Roma State College's Junior Campus next to two busy highways.
Moving the junior campus students to the middle campus permanently is one of the many options being considered by the Department of Education, Training and Employment and Roma State College's P&C.
A concept plan is being created for the college's future, which will include broad community consultation.
While no decision has been made to move the school children as yet, mother-of-four Jesse Treveton said the plan should consider the dangers of placing a school next to the Warrego and Carnarvon Hwys.
"It's actually the most ludicrous spot to put a school," she said.
"There haven't been any accidents yet but that's why they call them accidents, because no one suspects they're going to happen.
"I'd definitely support moving it, because even trying to get the kids across the busy road is hard."
The combined enrolment of students at the Junior and Middle Campus sits at 625, which would fit into the Middle Campus's official capacity of 838.
Darling Downs South West Regional director Greg Dickman said the plan was proposed due to concerns for student safety.
"The Minister for Educationin September last year approved the school P&C's request to consult with the wider Roma community to develop this concept plan," he said.
"Their request was based on concerns for student safety given the location of the junior campus."
