High School Update

9 May 2016

I welcome the announcement that the government will move the Intensive English High School to an upgraded Alexandria Park Community School Mitchell Road campus and build a new $60 million 1,200 student high school on the Cleveland Street site to open in 2020. The next step will expand Alexandria Park for up to 2,200 primary and secondary students to open by 2022.

There has been a strong community campaign to get new schools to meet massive growth in demand and I congratulate the advocates who have been working to get government action. The community must be involved with school design – we need well-designed, cutting edge facilities that meet the highest sustainability standards. The media release is HERE
