Mirvac has welcomed the Queensland State Government announcement today that a new State Primary School will open within its Everleigh masterplanned community in Greenbank in 2022, saying it was fantastic news for local families.

The Government officially announced the opening timing for the school, which will be built on a seven hectare site within Everleigh and is anticipated to cater for more than 1,400 students at its peak enrolment.

Mirvac has undertaken a nine month construction program to build the serviced site for the future school, with the Queensland Department of Education to design and construct the built form.

Mirvac General Manager, Residential Development Queensland, Warwick Bible, said the official announcement the school would open in 2022 was a significant milestone for the community and the growth of the area.

"We are extremely excited to be part of this important chapter for Everleigh and the broader Greenbank and surrounding communities," he said.

"The new school is located within one of the fastest growing regions in Queensland and has been high on the agenda for families for many years, so having an official opening date is certainly a big step forward.

"We can't wait to see the new school take shape over the coming years."

Mr Bible said Everleigh had been masterplanned with the school at its centre, promoting walkability and connection for residents.

"The majority of residents at Everleigh will be within walking distance of this new school," he said.

"It will sit alongside 25 hectares of regional sport and recreation parks, along with walking and cycling trails and a series of neighbourhood and linear parks, so will become the new heart of this community."

Mirvac will contribute a total of about $11 million to facilitate the school, including the civil works for the completed serviced site and a future stage of works to construct the eastern road frontage.

Mr Bible said Mirvac appreciated the collaborative approach by numerous stakeholders including the Department of Education and State Members Linus Power and Charis Mullen in achieving this fantastic outcome for the community.
