ST ANDREW’S Anglican College at Peregian Springs has opened the next stage of its masterplan, with a new multi-purpose courts complex and underground parking facility.
The impressive development, which began at the start of the year, was officially opened by Ninderry MP Dan Purdie and College Principal Reverend Chris Ivey on Monday, October 16.
During the official launch students and parents enjoyed being the first to use the new facility with games of netball and soccer.
Replacing an existing grassed area, the facility boasts six full-sized courts on an astroturf surface and is a welcome addition to the College’s sporting program, as well as providing additional space for Primary students during morning tea and lunch.
Sitting beside the College’s world-class Aquatic Centre, College Principal Reverend Chris Ivey said the development created an impressive recreational precinct.
“We are thrilled to introduce these new facilities to our College community,” Mr Ivey said.
“It marks a significant milestone in the College’s commitment to enhancing educational and recreational experiences for students and the community.
“The multi-purpose courts will assist in developing community and teamwork through the endless opportunities a facility like this provides.
“We look forward to watching our students prosper and above all, have fun on these new courts.”
Underneath the courts, a new underground car park, providing 100 parking spaces is also a welcome addition for the community.
The next stage in the College’s master plan is due to start mid-way through 2024, with stage one of a Performing Arts Centre (PAC) and a new main administration building towards the front of the College.
This will be followed by a ‘Future Learning’ building for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths (STEAM), estimated to commence in 2027.
