NEED

The capacity of the existing state schools in the area under investigation north of Brisbane is not considered sufficient to meet future enrolment demand. This area has experienced significant population growth over the past five years—particularly in the school-aged population. Rapid population growth is expected to continue due to the considerable degree of residential development in the area.

PROPOSAL

The proposal is investigating the delivery of additional state secondary schooling capacity for local students over the next five years. This may include augmenting the capacity of existing schools and/or delivering a new school.

The project is expected to:

  • improve educational outcomes
  • improve student wellbeing
  • improve teacher satisfaction
  • increase local accessibility to secondary education services.
