Albany Creek State High is one of the Moreton Bay schools that will benefit from the 2020 Ready program that will help build additional classrooms to support a new era in Queensland’s education from 2020.

The government will commit $250 million over two years in the State Budget for the 2020 Ready funding boost that will support more than 60 Queensland high schools.

Police Minister and Member for Morayfield Mark Ryan said the government funding would support four Moreton Bay schools to accommodate the first full complement of secondary students in Year 7 to 12.

“Albany Creek State High will also see a new single storey secondary learning centre built at a cost of $4.2 million while Bribie Island High will receive a new $10.3 million two storey building housing additional classrooms,” Mr Ryan said.

“In 2020, for the very first time in Queensland’s history, our high schools will have a full complement of students across all six year levels.”

According to Education Minister Grace Grace, the government’s $250 million infrastructure investment is set to support an anticipated 17,000 additional students across the state.

Other schools in the Moreton Bay Region that will benefit from the 2020 Ready program include Caboolture State High, Bribie Island High, and North Lakes State College.
