Two New Schools for Springfield Lakes

Delfin Springfield Lakes and Springfield Land Corporation have welcomed Education and Training Minister Geoff Wilson and Member for Bundamba Jo-Ann Miller's announcement that construction will soon begin on a primary and high school worth almost $50 million.

Delfin Springfield Lakes Project Director Darlene Clark said they were excited to be involved in the delivery of the schools which would complement the current educational offering in the region.

"Delfin have contributed in excess of $10 million to date for early road and servicing infrastructure which will ensure the schools are delivered for our community as soon as possible," Ms Clark said.

"Delfin Springfield Lakes have enjoyed working collaboratively with Ipswich City Council, Springfield Land Corporation and the Department of Education and Training to design and master plan the schools precinct."

Springfield Land Corporation Managing Director Bob Sharpless said the two new schools were a great example of what the state government, local council and developers could achieve by working together.

"20,000 people already call Springfield home including a large number of young families who want local education facilities for their children," Mr Sharpless said.

 "Our vision is to create a city where residents can live, work, learn and play.

"Springfield's population is set to surpass Darwin's by 2030 so this type of development is a sign of things to come as we continue providing residents with a range of study and training institutions."
