Pimpama Keeps Growing
Pimpama has been labelled one of the fastest growing suburbs in Queensland, experiencing up to 20% growth over the past few years. In the past six years, the population has doubled to well over 7000 and is projected to quadruple within 20 years.
The high population growth of the area has been fuelled by extensive residential and commercial developments. With growth comes growing pains, which has seen the suburb struggling to keep pace with the population growth. A number of infrastructure projects have been completed recently, such as the widening and extension of arterial roads. are yet to commence construction, including the new Sporting and Aquatic Centre and approved Pimpama station.
The King’s Pimpama campus has also experienced rapid expansion in 2020, with the building of the new library and high school infrastructure, affording the College a position to handle future growth. During this past week another exciting project has been added to the building process, with a third building approved by the College Board.
This new building will feature an extension to Noah’s Ark Early Learning Centre with an additional two classrooms and a dedicated Music and Choir Facility, which will include a large music class for ensembles, choirs and class music lessons. A further six smaller studios will cater for individual and smaller group practice and tutoring.
"This new music facility will be a wonderful addition to the school's music department. Dedicated learning spaces for music education will enable continued growth in student learning and provide new opportunities for students to develop their musical talents," said Mr Lindsay Genge, Instrumental Music Coordinator.
Mrs Tracey Verreynne, Head of Early Learning, said, “We are excited to be able to offer more places to our King's families and to new families who are keen to join our King's community. This development continues to provide future growth for the school.”
