Highfields State Secondary College
Since elected, my promise and commitment to the people of Highfields, and the communities of Toowoomba North, was to see the Highfields State Secondary College become a reality. A promise now delivered, and one which will certainly make living and raising a family in Highfields much more convenient.. taking away the burden of traveling long distances each day.
With Highfields being one of the fastest growing communities in our region it was essential for the community to have a local high school. So we committed $35 million over three years from 2012-13 to build the much wanted new Secondary College, with stage one of the High School catering for up to 260 Year 7 and 8 junior secondary students in the 2015 school year. Further stages for years 9 and 10 in 2016-17, and for years 11 and 12 in 2018-19, will accommodate an estimated 1000 students, giving students access to the best possible high school education, right here in our community.
So whatever their chosen path, whether through trade, starting a business, family or furthering their education… the Highfields State Secondary College will nurture and educate tomorrow’s workforce, leaders and innovators.
