New School for Burpengary East!

  • We request that Education Queensland secure the land and start the process to establish a new state primary school in Burpengary East. Our community is one of the fastest-growing in the Moreton Bay region and the growth of the North Harbour development means hundreds of new families and thousands of school-aged children will move into our area. Providing quality education for our kids is a top priority for our community, and the creation of a new primary school in Burpengary East is strongly supported by all our local families.
