FACILITIES at Westside Christian College's primary school campus are poised to expand with several new buildings including nine extra classrooms.
Ipswich City Council Planning and Development Committee Chairperson Councillor Paul Tully said council had approved an application for extensions on the existing Goodna site.
Cr Tully said the extensions would include three classroom blocks accommodating the nine extra classrooms, an administration and staff facilities building, an amenities building, a tuckshop, a staffroom and a storage room.
The new development will cover an area 1,280m2 in size and will be located to the south of the established school buildings and along the Stuart Street frontage of the school site, Cr Tully said.
"The development will extend facilities on site to accommodate a total of 500 students from Prep to Grade 7," Cr Tully said.
"With Westside Christian College growing all the time, these extensions will provide welcome learning and support facilities, as well as shaded areas for student drop off and collection."
The development also includes an additional 67 car parking spaces and a bus set-down area.
Existing footpaths and kerb and channel will be extended to encompass the full Stuart Street frontage of the school site.
