I couldn’t be happier to see construction starting on these big infrastructure projects at Aspley SHS, worth nearly $16 million. These centers mean so much to the whole school community.
The current music centre is 35-years-old and well overdue for a replacement. Both buildings will significantly boost art, sport and music subjects for students, giving them an opportunity to be educated in world-class facilities.
We’re expecting both projects to be finished by March 2021.
The new buildings will be a huge boost for students beyond the classroom setting. The $12 million sports hall will feature two sports courts, two general learning areas, a gym, canteen, staff office, storage rooms and a kinesiology lab, it’s part of our $235 million Renewing Our Schools Program, one of 26 state schools benefitting from this funding.
The $3.8 million music centre will include visual arts, music, drama and dance classrooms as well as practice rooms and a staff office.
