Construction has finished on an impressive $18 million, six-level learning centre at North Lakes State College.
Students are making the most of the ‘Endeavour Building’ which is the first of a new era of vertically designed buildings in state schools.
This high-rise building is a game-changer for North Lakes State College, offering a glimpse into the future of educational infrastructure in Queensland.
The building features 10 general learning classrooms, six multimedia rooms, a double music room, special education learning facilities, a roof-top terrace, an auditorium and outdoor spaces.
On the ground floor, a Year 12 oasis has been created including a virtual reality space that will inspire senior student’s educational aspirations.
A 48-vehicle car park has also been incorporated into the building.
This is a truly welcome investment in the future of this growing school.
The project has been funded under the Palaszczuk Government’s 2020 Ready program.
This brilliant centre was constructed by Hutchinson Builders, supporting 43 full-time jobs.
Annastacia Palaszczuk’s number one priority is jobs. The Palaszczuk Government is taking action across the state to boost our economy and ensure that its Queenslanders that benefit.
That means building the infrastructure our schools need to ensure they can continue to provide students with a world-class education.
North Lakes State College Principal Samantha Knowles said the Endeavour Building was a preview of the future of high school education in Queensland.
“Our school is proud to be at the forefront of innovative education, and to be offering our students the best in school facilities to develop the skills they need for the future,” Ms Knowles said.
“Our staff in particular have embraced the new building, taking the opportunity to create classes that respond to the flexible functionality that this magnificent building has to offer.”
