A new Secondary College in Dutton Park’s knowledge precinct is set to open for intakes in 2021. State-of-the-art learning and innovative teaching hubs will form key elements of the new Inner City South State School.
Deputy Premier and Member for South Brisbane Jackie Trad released the new concept master plan and designs for the new high school for community feedback. “The concept master plan for the new state high school is a key milestone, bringing this project to life through the design of contemporary learning centres set around an inspiring outdoor learning plaza that will form the heart of the school site,” she said. “The learning plaza will become the central gathering space at the school and provides a strong sense of community in this inner-urban context. This game-changing project is part of the Queensland Government’s $800 million Building Future Schools Fund. Stage One of the new high school will be completed in time for foundation Year 7 students to commence in Term 1, 2021, with the school continuing to grow a year level each year through to 2026 when the school will offer Year 7 to Year 12 .”
Trad says that the community have been great advocates for this much-needed school and have already provided excellent ideas and suggestions which have guided the concepts and designs. The community will continue to play a vital role in the development of this flagship school for the inner south. “The community have been great advocates for this much-needed school and have already provided excellent ideas and suggestions which have guided these concepts and designs,” she said. “I encourage the local community to take the time to look at the concept drawings and images and provide their thoughts and feedback. This will shape the detailed design that the design team will finalise in coming months.” Ms Trad said.
