MEMBER for Toowoomba North Trevor Watts has rolled out the first promise of the election campaign.

He has sworn to deliver an arts and sports hall at Toowoomba State High School's Wilsonton campus if he is re-elected.

Mr Watts was joined by Education Minister John-Paul Langbroek and Minister for Agriculture John McVeigh in making the announcement.

The $3 million facility will be built on the North St side of the school and will cater for assemblies, indoor sports and exams.

Mr Watts said he was passionate about the project.

"I've been talking to the P&C about this for three years and made a personal commitment that I would get this job done," he said.

Mr Watts said the hall was vitally needed.

"Whenever the school gathers they meet outside in the weather," he said.

"This hall will give them a much-needed indoor capability for events like Anzac Day."

Mr Watts said Toowoomba-based companies would have an opportunity to tender for the construction of the hall.

The school's P&C president David van Tricht said seeing the project come close to fruition was exciting.

Labor candidate for Toowoomba North Kerry Shine would not match the commitment to build the hall, but said he wanted a guarantee that the LNP government wouldn't close more schools.
