King's Building Openings Mark a Milestone Day
King’s Christian College marked a milestone day on 4 May, as all three campuses held building opening ceremonies attended by State and Federal Members of Parliament, local councillors, church elders and executive pastors, members of the College board, principals, ISQ (Independent Schools Queensland) and BGA (Block Grant Authority) representatives, and other special guests.
King’s Christian College Logan Village was officially opened by the Honourable Alan Tudge MP, Federal Minister for Education and Youth, and Bert van Manen MP, Federal Member for Forde.
Guests included Linus Power MP (Member for Logan), Councillor Scott Brannan (Division 9), Councillor Laurie Koranski (Division 4) and Phil Pidgeon (Former Division 9 Councillor who was very supportive during King’s planning phase).
Lorraine Oswald, Group Head of Primary said, “King’s Christian College Logan Village is so grateful for the overwhelming support we have received from the Federal Government as well as our local community business and church leaders.
“A community’s children are their most precious treasures. They say it takes a village to raise a child. The enormous success of King’s academic, cultural, sporting, character and spiritual development has not been achieved overnight. Its progress has been overseen by the school board, men and women of faith and vision who are the unseen force ensuring our success. Our dedicated and caring staff, including those working tirelessly behind the scenes, ensure great things are happening in our classrooms, to educate our students for the future.”
King’s Christian College embarked on the campus at Logan Village with aid from the Federal Government’s Capital Grants Program. The official opening commemorated the first Primary building designed by architect Simon Brook from Burling Brown and built with excellence by Dave Harney Constructions. The Primary building consists of six classrooms, an atrium, amenities and storage. The College will continue to build according to its master plan with the eventual capacity to educate 1800 students a year at its Logan Village campus.
King’s Christian College Logan Village currently caters for 164 students in Prep to Year 4. An additional year level will be added each year, with High School (Year 7) commencing in 2024. The College also has 118 children enrolled at its onsite Early Learning Centre, affectionately known as 'Noah’s Ark'. Two additional early learning rooms will open later this year.
