New school opens in one of the Gold Coast’s fastest growing suburbs

The State Government has officially opened the newest primary school on the Gold Coast.

Picnic Creek State School is located in Coomera and Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk says her government is committed to providing “quality learning” to all students across the state.

“We’re all about giving children a great start,” she said.


“This is a milestone moment for the popular community of Coomera, which we know is a rapidly growing area.

“The student population has climbed… I have no doubt it will continue to rise.”

Alongside the school at Coomera, schools were opened in Logan, Caloundra and Townsville today.

Picnic Creek State School has some of the most up-to-date facilities of any school in Queensland.

They have a recording studio, in sports hall and interactive TVs in every classroom.

Alongside the high tech gear, there’s a connection to the nearby natural habitat with a bridge that gives students access to the Koala Conservation Area.
