The Queensland State Government has announced that is committed to providing quality education facilities in growing communities and creating jobs, by announcing a $346 million education package including building four (4) new state schools.

Design and construction of new buildings will include all infrastructure works to support the new buildings and facilities, a new multi-storey junior and senior learning buildings (20 general learning areas), administration block, resource centre, multi-purpose hall, hospitality and central amenities, and sports oval, carpark and drop off areas.
Annastacia Palaszczuk, Premier of Queensland outlined that the new schools were being delivered in some of the fastest growing regions in Queensland and to continue creating jobs as part of our economic recovery in response to the effects of Covid 19.
“My Government is planning for the future and responding to the growth that we are expecting in these regions”.
“We are all more than aware that the global economic headwinds are pointing toward unprecedented difficult times in the wake the global COVID-19 pandemic”.
“Queensland’s plan for economic recovery begins with job creation and in the education space we’re more than pulling our weight, delivering another five new state schools in 2021 on top of the eight that were opened this year”.
“These 2022 schools will ensure the pipeline of work on these construction projects can continue.” the Premier said.
Grace Grace, Education Minister outlined that the schools would be ready for in time for their first day of school, with three (3) to open for the 2022 school year and a new primary school (location to be determined) in Brisbane’s inner west suburbs by 2023.
“As well as providing world-class education infrastructure, the scale of these projects means there will be significant employment opportunities for local tradies and subcontractors” .
“We are focused on getting people back to work as we unite and recover from the global COVID-19 pandemic, with these projects expected to support more than 870 local jobs”.
“These projects are building on our record investment in building new schools and expanding existing schools in high growth areas”.
“The new special school in Coomera will service the growing population in Coomera and Pimpama and provide special schooling relief to the existing Southport Special School on the Gold Coast and Beenleigh Special School in Logan”, Minister Grace said.
