Queensland's Newest State High School Officially Opened


Treasurer Curtis Pitt today officially opened Bellbird Park State Secondary College, one of four new schools which opened their doors to Queensland students this year.
Mr Pitt said it was great to meet the first intake of students at Queensland's newest state high school.
"The Palaszczuk Government is proud to be delivering new school infrastructure across Queensland," Mr Pitt said.
"This new secondary school in Bellbird Park will cater for the growing demands of the Ipswich region.
"While the school population today is only 250 students, by the time the current grade 7 students graduate, the school will have grown to well over 1800 students.
"These new students will have access to state-of-the-art education facilities, which will help them gain the best start in life."
Member for Bundamba Jo-Ann Miller said the first intake of students would help shape the future direction of the College.
"As the founding class, these year 7 students are the trailblazers for this new school," Ms Miller said.
"With new teachers and infrastructure all the students at Bellbird Park will have the right building blocks to succeed in their secondary education."
Over the next five years, Bellbird Park State Secondary College will expand to a Year 7 -12 campus.
The four new state schools which opened in 2017 are Cairns Special School, Pumicestone State School, Fernbrooke State School at Redbank Plains and Bellbird Park State Secondary College.
