MEADOW Springs North school will be built on Pineknoll Gardens in 2019.

Education Minister Peter Collier announced the new school to cater for increasing student enrolments in growing areas.

“In addition, temporary facilities will open next year for kindergarten and pre-primary students ahead of the completion of each school’s permanent buildings, so that young children can start their education in these new schools,” he said.

Mr Collier said the school in Meadow Springs North would ease enrolment pressure on Meadow Springs Primary School and Lakelands Primary School.

It will be built for 430 students at a cost of $15.5 million.

“The school will be air-conditioned and have general teaching buildings, an early childhood building, music and art/craft facilities, an administration building, library, covered assembly area and canteen, landscaped courtyards, hard courts, an oval, staffroom and parking,” Mr Collier said.

“It will also be equipped with the latest technology to support children’s education.”
