It’s all systems go for Mt Maria College Petrie as plans to establish three new classrooms and extend its existing covered sports area receive approval.
The Catholic co-educational high school plans to construct three new classrooms that will allow it to accommodate 39 more students this 2022 from the current 501.
The three new classrooms will have a total new gross floor area of 205 sqm and are expected to ease overcrowding currently being experienced in the existing learning spaces.
The subject site has a total area of 7,188 hectares with multiple frontages including the Anzac Avenue frontage.
Along with the three new classrooms, a minor extension of the sports hall will also be undertaken which will include a 64sqm storage area and storage space. The existing sports field will be relocated to “capture a more favourable solar aspect in accordance with best practice design.”
To facilitate the reorientation of the sports oval, existing fencing, gardens, sheds, sandpit, grandstand, and shade sails will be removed.
Likewise, the existing carpark at the southern boundary will be expanded to include 15 additional parking spaces as well as provision of lockers, landscaping, male and female toilets, and tiered seating next to the new building.
Mt Maria College Petrie is a Catholic Archdiocesan Co-educational Secondary College established in 1987 by Brisbane Catholic Education.
Formerly known as “Kolbe College”, the College sits on a four-hectare of gardens and bush-land at 21 Armstrong Street, Petrie next to Our Lady of the Way school and Our Lady of the Way Church.
