$73 Million State Primary School – North Maclean, Logan


The Queensland State Government has announced that work has officially commences on the new state primary school at North Maclean, Logan.

Annastacia Palaszczuk, Premier and Grace Grace, Education Minister joined Linus Power, Member for Logan with Charis Mullen, Member for Jordan on 16 February to turn the first sod on one of three new state schools being built for 2022.

“Construction is absolutely vital to rebuilding our economy and creating jobs”. “That’s why we’re forging ahead with infrastructure projects that will provide good, honest, reliable jobs for locals”. “No government in Queensland’s history has invested more in our schools”.

“This is a historic day for the Greenbank community. Students in Prep to Year 6 will walk through the school gates in January 2022 with an admin block, library, multi-purpose hall, oval, playgrounds and classrooms”.

“It’s great to turn the sod today and to see tradies and labourers hard at work here at the Greater Flagstone Priority Development Area,” the Premier said.

The new primary school at Greenbank is one of three schools being delivered by the Palaszczuk Government in time for 2022.

Stage 1 of the new school build will cater to approximately 700 students,  with 1,400 students to be accommodated in the future.

Linus Power, Member for Logan outlined how thrilled he was to see construction starting in his local area.

“This is an exciting milestone for the many young families in the North MacLean community”.

“This is a high-growth part of southeast Queensland with increasing numbers of families moving into the new Everleigh housing development, where new family homes continue to spring up every day,” Mr Power said.

Charis Mullen, Member for Jordan outlined that the new school came on top of more than $90 million already invested in state schools across Jordan and more than $60 million in Logan since 2015.

“I look forward to seeing tradies at work on this site, and the first students heading through the school gates in a year’s time,” she said.

Grace Grace, Education Minister outlined that the school was part of the Palaszczuk Government’s record $1.9 billion infrastructure spend in 2020-21.

“Our investment in our schools will help drive the post-COVID economic recovery as well as ensuring all Queensland children, no matter where they live, will benefit from world-class facilities at school”.

“North MacLean and the other new schools we are building for 2022 will keep a pipeline of construction work going and create jobs for local tradies and contractors,” she said.

Warwick Bible, Residential Manager of Mirvac Queensland outlined that the start of work on the new school was a major milestone for the fast-growing Greenbank community.

“The new state primary school is a fantastic asset for the entire Greenbank region and, in particular, the young minds who will start their educational journey here over the coming years”.

“Many first home buyers and families are choosing to call this area home, with Everleigh alone to have about 750 residents by the start of the 2022 school year and some 3,000 when the school bell rings in early 2026″.

“We share the State Government’s vision of bringing to life new infrastructure such as this to support that growth and the families who live in this region,” he said.
