Pumicestone State School will open its doors at the start of 2017 catering for Prep through to Year 6 and already has more than 100 students registered with plenty more enrolments rolling in daily.
Robyn Conlin who will be the founding Principal has been an educator for 25 years and has been working hard behind the scenes in the lead-up to the school’s opening, organising public meetings and spreading the word through the community that the school will be open for classes in January 2017 in time for the first day of school.
Funding for Pumicestone State School was initially allocated by the LNP Government and will provide everything the students need to begin their education. They will have all the latest facilities and will also make available to parents a Resource Scheme to help with the costs associated with sending kids to school.
As a result of the community consultation, the school colours of navy with lime and purple have been chosen for the formal uniform and the school’s motto will be “Shaping Our Tomorrows”.
The school will initially cater for some 450 students with stage one opening next year and stage two a couple of years later. Any parents who wish to secure a spot for their child or children are encouraged to contact Robin Conlin on 0472 844 761 or at https://newprimaryschoolincaboolture.eq.edu.au.
