Brisbane Catholic Education has been given the go ahead to build a new primary school on Halletts Road at Redbank Plains.
The first two stages (of eight) will include classrooms, an administration building, covered PE space, canteen, play space and IT area to accommodate up to 186 students and 18 staff. Once it is fully developed, it will have enough classrooms and facilities to cater for about 780 students and 50 staff.
It’s being built in a booming area. Redbank Plains is consistently among the city’s fastest growing suburbs, with council’s latest Planning and Development Quarterly Activity Report ranking it first for population growth.
In the 2018 June quarter another 419 people decided to call the suburb home taking its total population to 21,939 – that’s a growth rate of 1.95 per cent.
The Redbank Plains school is one of several new campuses planned for the region, with 20 new Catholic schools planned for the next decade.
You won’t have to wait long. Construction is set to begin in March/April 2019 with the school expected to open in time for the 2020 school year.
