Sunnybank Hills State School is rapidly growing and is one of the largest state primary schools in Queensland. The new learning centre is the first two-storey building on the site and replaced a collection of ageing, demountable teaching spaces to provide contemporary learning spaces. Through the removal of these buildings the new learning centre has improved the connection of the original school buildings to the oval and the performing arts centre and addressed level changes across the campus to improve equitable access. The project includes a number of outdoor teaching spaces and recreational areas that connect students with the school’s impressive open green spaces.
Sunnybank Hills State School has students from very diverse cultural backgrounds and focuses on nurturing learning engagement and creating a sense of belonging and welcome for students and staff alike. The new learning centre provides a physical environment to support this commitment.
