The inspiring new school set to become a reality in Robina

A NEW private education facility helping disadvantaged youth is set to become a reality in Robina after receiving support from Council’s Planning Committee.

Gold Coast Mayor Tom Tate said the committee endorsed the new school, which will be operated by Arcadia College, at a meeting on Wednesday.

The college is a co-ed secondary school offering a safe, inclusive and future focused education and well-being program for students who have faced personal hardship and need a little more support.


If the new development is ticked off by Full Council tomorrow, the 300-student facility will be built at Centreline Place near C-Bus Stadium and the train station, offering accessibility and convenience for attendees.

“This will cost ratepayers nothing but will deliver lasting social benefit for those students doing it tough in life,’” Mayor Tate said of the new facility.

It comes following the success of the already established Arcadia College at Varsity Lakes.
