Bounty Boulevard State School welcomes new classrooms

Year 4 and 5 students at Bounty Boulevard State School students have started the new year in eight brand new classrooms following a $3 million upgrade to Block O at the school.


Member for Bancroft Chris Whiting said the upgrade ensured the school had the classroom space it needed to cater for continued enrolment growth.


“The Year 4 and 5 students are getting the best education from Queensland teachers in the best new classrooms in Queensland,” Chris Whiting said.


“Bounty Boulevards is the biggest P-6 state school in Queensland and this project allowed existing classrooms to be now used by specialist teachers.


“The Palaszczuk Government has always made sure we enhance and renew facilities at the school.


“A large covered play area has also been installed to replace the shaded area used to construct the new classrooms.


“The school has funded the installation of playground equipment to complete this lovely outdoor area,” said Chris Whiting.


School Principal, Brett Burgess, said the entire school community has welcomed the new classrooms.


“It’s great that our language, music and art teachers now have their own areas to plan and deliver lessons and display student work,” Mr Burgess said.


“The school has experienced an increase in enrolments over the past 12 months as result of young families moving into the area, and these additional spaces will ensure we continue to cater for this growth into the future.”


Chris Whiting said the construction project had the added benefit of creating jobs.


“Building the infrastructure our schools need means we can provide a world-class education and give Queensland kids a great start,” said Chris Whiting.


The upgrade to Block O at Bounty Boulevard State School supported around 8 full-time jobs during construction.
