Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and Education Minister Grace Grace have officially opened the $34.5 Million Picnic Creek State School on the Gold Coast.

Premier Palaszczuk and Minister Grace visited the Coomera school today, one of four that opened across the state in 2018.

“We’re all about giving our children a great start.” Premier Palaszczuk said.

“This is a milestone moment for the popular community of Coomera, which we know is a rapidly growing area.”

“Student population has climbed from 195 to 261 since the start of the year and I have no doubt it will continue to rise.” Premier Palaszczuk said.

Palaszczuk Government is committed to providing high quality learning environments for all Queensland children, which is why we’ve invested $170 Million to construct 4 new schools this year.

These include:

  • Baringa State Primary School in Caloundra South,
  • North Shore State School in Townsville,
  • Picnic Creek State School on the Gold Coast,
  • Yarrabilba State School in Logan City.

“I’m really looking forward to seeing Picnic Creek State School establish itself in the community.” Premier Palaszczuk said.

Minister Grace said Picnic Creek State School boasts state-of-the-art facilities.

“To name a few, Picnic Creek has a recording studio, an indoor sports hall, LED touch-screen interactive TV’s in every classroom and a resource centre with a green room.” Minister Grace said.

“Unique to the school is a bridge, which gives students access to a Koala Conservation Area next door where they can care for local wildlife.”

“Palaszczuk Government is committed to ensuring all Queensland state students have the opportunity to achieve success, but you can’t do that without quality infrastructure.” Minister Grace said.

“In 2018-19 we are delivering an overall infrastructure investment program across the state valued at more than $923 Million.”

Assistant Principal Susan O’Brien said the school has a vision to ensure every student succeeds.

“Key to ensuring this success is to create a school culture where students have the confidence and drive to reach their full potential.” Assistant Principal O’Brien said.
