King’s Christian College officially opened its Logan Village campus in May, unveiling modern facilities that will service the rapidly growing communities of Logan Reserve, Logan Village and Chambers Flat.
The grounds contain six classrooms, an atrium area, an auditorium, outdoor playground facilities, a playing field and multi-purpose courts, and caters for Early Learning for children from two and half years.
These facilities are just the beginning as King’s plans to expand the campus to P-12, with a vision to accommodate for over 1800 students.
The honour of officially opening the school went to Education Minister Mr. Alan Tudge alongside Member for Forde Mr. Bert van Manen.
The Chambers Flat site is King’s third campus, adding to their established sites in Reedy Creek and Pimpana and taking their total school size to over 4000 students.
Education Minister Alan Tudge praised the facilities, which will continue to benefit from federal funding under the Morrison Government’s Capital Grants Program.
‘These new, state of the art facilities will make a huge difference in the daily lives of students and teachers at King’s Christian College,’ Mr. Tudge said.
‘The Morrison Government has invested $2.3 million into this project and in doing so we are giving these local students the best chance possible to reach their full potential at school and go on to further study or into a job.’
‘I can say to this school community that we are backing you one hundred percent.’
Head of Primary Ms. Lorraine Oswald shared King’s vision on the morning.
‘The vision of King’s has always been to serve the body of Christ. To raise up students as Christian leaders, people who will influence others, no matter where they go.’
King’s Christian College Board Chairman Mr. Brendon Blakemore echoed Ms. Osawld’s comments.
‘King’s has enabled the providing of a high-quality education based firmly on family foundations of the Christian faith,’ Mr. Blakemore said.
Mr. Tudge and Mr. Van Manen had many words of praise for King’s growth and history.
‘What a success story this school has been,’ said Mr. Tudge. ‘From thirty years ago starting with nothing, but with a big vision, inspired by God to develop opportunities for people to have a good Christian education.’
‘Well done to all the schoolteachers, well done to the school community,’ Mr. Tudge said.
‘I’m looking forward to what the school is going to contribute to our community over the years to come,’ said Mr. Van Manen.
‘I know from the history and the track record of King’s that that will undoubtedly be achieved.’
