Re-imagining spaces that inspire teaching and learning.
Contemporary environments enhancing teaching and learning
We are driving sustainable investment to optimise and renew educational infrastructure across the school network.
Our school and early childhood infrastructure must continue to meet the needs of Queensland’s diverse and growing communities. By prioritising efficient and sustainable investment, we will revitalise schools across our state.
Modern learning demands contemporary environments that provide the space, technology and access for collaborative teaching. Through good design, we can create learning spaces that promote collaboration and positive relationships. Accessibility to our learning and administrative buildings by all members of the public, regardless of age and ability, improves equity, inclusion and a school’s connection to its community.
Our system actions to revitalise educational infrastructure:
- implement a future-focused and long-term infrastructure plan to ensure schools can meet the learning demands of the future
- deliver a clear investment prioritisation approach that effectively balances need for new schools and renewal of existing schools to meet contemporary learning needs
- enhance transparency and accountability in management of school enrolments to ensure the system can provide for growing student enrolments and changing communities.
