The construction of a brand-new school building at Serviceton South State School was officially kicked off with the turning of the first sod by the Queensland Premier, Annastacia Palaszczuk. The school is located in the Premier’s Inala electorate. Her presence reinforced her commitment to improving the quality of education facilities in her electorate and creating construction jobs.
The new Queensland Department of Education school building will provide state-of-the-art facilities for the students, allowing them to access the latest education resources and technology. The project is funded under the Government’s $1.9 billion Building Education initiative.
During the sod turning ceremony, the Premier was joined by Serviceton South students who will benefit from the new building. It was a wonderful moment to see them be a part of this milestone event and we’re excited for them to enjoy the benefits of this new facility in the near future.
The Premier is a proud Serviceton South past student and her father, the former member for Inala, Hon Henry Palaszczuk taught at the school before entering politics.
“The Premier is where she is today because of the great start that the school provided,” Mr Stewart said. “Who knows, a future Premier may also start their journey to the top in an ICM built classroom.”
The new school building represents an investment of almost $5 million and will comprise of three new GLA rooms and specialist learning areas.
Congratulations to everyone involved in this project, and we look forward to seeing the Premier return to the school to “cut the ribbon” at the official opening at the end of the year.
