5 FAST SCHOOL FACTS
5 facts about the new state primary school in Everleigh
Construction of the new $66 million state primary school in Greenbank is now underway in a milestone for Everleigh, our residents and the wider Greenbank community.
We know many local families are excited for the school’s opening - set for Term One in 2022 - so we’ve put together a list of what we know so far about this fantastic asset for Everleigh.
Why was the school created?
A new state primary school was always central to the Everleigh masterplan. The vision was to create a community where every young resident could be within walking distance to a state-of-the-art primary school, and we’re thrilled construction has now started.
Set within the State Government’s Greater Flagstone Priority Development Area (PDA), the new primary school will cater to the fast-growing population within Everleigh and the wider Greenbank community.
We expect to have around 750 residents living in Everleigh by the start of the 2022 school year and 3,000 by early 2026, so the school is important new infrastructure to support that growth.
How big will it be?
The first stage of the new state primary school will cater to around 700 students from Prep to Year 6, with plans for the school to accommodate 1400 students in future, helping to support further growth in the local area.
What amenities will it have?
Everleigh families have a lot to look forward to, with students getting to enjoy brand new facilities. These will include an administration block, resource centre, multi-purpose hall, Prep learning area, junior learning areas, student and staff amenities, canteen, covered areas, oval, playgrounds and more.
Who will be constructing it?
The new state primary school is being built by the respected FKG Group. The company has been operating for over 40 years and is known for delivering a variety of building and engineering projects across the country. Construction on the school is also expected to create over 200 new jobs in the local community.
What about a high school?
The State Government is planning a state secondary school 4km south-west of Everleigh. We will be sure to update the community with more details when they become available. In the meantime, if you have any questions about this new school, you're best to contact the Queensland Department of Education.
