Growth spurt brings education focus to Bellbird Park

January 23, 2019 | IN Media Release and News | BY AVID | 2 min read

In response to sustained rapid growth in South East Queensland’s Ipswich region, local schools are starting to expand their education offerings – including world-class facilities – to cater to a surge in enrolment demands.

Bellbird Park State Secondary College (BPSSC), a new education facility located in Brentwood Forest, Bellbird Park – one of the top 10 fastest-growing suburbs in South East Queensland1 – is one example, opening two new buildings and welcoming a Year 9 cohort to its ranks for the first time in 2019.

Bellbird Park State Secondary College Principal Michael West said this year – its third year open – the school is expecting over 300 new students.

“We have been overwhelmed with enrolment enquiries for 2019 and this can be attributed to our strong reputation in the community and our vision of ensuring that all students grow each year,” Mr West said.

“To help cater for our increase in enrolments, we are excited to offer a range of new facilities to students, including a sports hall, performing arts auditorium, science labs and applied technology rooms.”

BPSSC is located within AVID Property Group’s Brentwood Forest masterplanned community, where a large contingent of families moving to the area has contributed to the peak in enrolments at the school.

“It’s great to be part of a supportive community. As a school, we pride ourselves on our high expectations and will endeavour to engage with the Brentwood Forest community as much as possible,” Mr West said.

AVID Property Group General Manager Bruce Harper said building a community is more than just building new homes and the school is an integral piece of the community’s masterplan.

“AVID is dedicated to supporting the sustainable growth of communities for local residents and families so it’s been wonderful to see the Bellbird Park State Secondary College prosper,” Mr Harper said. “As the region continues to grow, having a school like BPSSC with first-class amenities close by will be a priceless asset to residents and families in the community.

“We also believe that involving the school with the broader community is important, so we’ll be facilitating a number of events at Brentwood Forest throughout the year.”
