Preparations for the January 2020 opening of Mango Hill State High School have shifted to high gear and no one is more excited than Michael Rogers, its newly appointed principal.
Presently the acting principal at Sunnybank State High School, Mr Rogers has more than 10 years of school leadership experience. Appointed by the Department of Education, he first worked as the deputy principal of Kenmore State High School in 2009.
He knows Mango Hill State High School is a much anticipated school and has heard about great things to come in the area. Mr Rogers is looking forward for its opening in January 2020.
The new state high school will be located at 157 Kinsellas Road East, bounded by Kinsellas Road East and Richard Road. The Queensland Government appointed FK Gardner & Sons to deliver the school, which will feature an administration building, information services centre, junior general learning areas, central covered lunch area and canteen, sports centre, green space, and science centre with junior applied technology and hospitality facilities.
In future stages, it will also have the following facilities:
- junior applied technology centre
- food and hospitality centre
- art and design centre
- senior general learning centre
- performing arts, music and multimedia centre
After commencing construction in March 2019 and appointing a principal just recently, Mango Hill will finally open its enrolment by Term 3 2019.
The school will cater to Year 7 and 8 students on its Term 1. It will start accepting Year 7 to 12 students by 2024. Construction is expected to be completed for the start of Term 1.
Mango Hill State High School is made possible through Queensland Government’s $1.3 billion Building Future Schools Fund. It aims to deliver world class learning environments for Queensland students, including new primary, secondary and special schools opening in 2020 and 2021.
