The Gold Coast’s newest high school is officially open.
Address: 282 Foxwell Rd, Coomera QLD 4209

Education Minister Grace Grace today joined the local school community in the opening of the state-of-the-art Foxwell State Secondary College.


“This is an exciting milestone for the Foxwell school community after what’s been a difficult year for our Queensland state schools with COVID-19,” Ms Grace said.

“I’m proud of Principal Kym Amor and her staff for ensuring that learning continued for the students at Foxwell during term 2.

“Today we’re celebrating the official opening of Stage 1 of this $64 million school which is providing a world-class education for all students.

“Foxwell is one of many major school projects we’re investing in on the Gold Coast.

“Coomera is a rapidly growing part of the world which is why we’re building a new primary school at Pimpama opening in 2021 and a special school in 2022.  

“This Government is no stranger when it comes to investing in Gold Coast state school projects, with half a billion dollars invested since 2015.”

Ms Grace said Foxwell SSC was built on time and on budget for the start of the 2020 school year, supporting 190 local jobs.

“The school welcomed around 200 year 7 students on January 28 this year,” Ms Grace said.

“Stage 1 included junior classrooms, an administration building, information service centre, central covered lunch area and canteen, a sports performance centre, play space and car parking.

“The students love their brand new school, with more facilities to be built to accommodate years 7-12 by 2025.”

Ms Grace said Stage 2 of Foxwell would be ready for the 2022 school year.

“We recently announced that we’re moving ahead with Stage 2 and I’m excited to watch the school grow and develop, and for the students to enjoy the new facilities we’re building,” she said.

“Stage 2 will include a kitchen and food studies learning spaces, science labs, construction workshops, performing arts centre and kinesiology labs.

“Around 142 local jobs will be supported during this stage.

“COVID-19 has been devastating for our community and expansions like this are part of our ongoing plan to get Queenslanders back to work.”

Foundation Principal Kym Amor said it was a day for the history books. 

“Foxwell State Secondary College has been warmly welcomed by the local community and I feel incredibly proud to be appointed to lead this new school,” Mrs Amor said.

“Our school is focused on ensuring a world of opportunity and succuss for every student and one of our greatest achievements since opening in January has been the partnerships we have fostered between students, staff, parents and the wider community.

“I look forward to continuing to work closely with the school community as we continue to develop and grow.”

Walkabout Creek Discovery Centre underwent a mini-makeover during COVID-19

Walkabout Creek Discovery Centre underwent a mini-makeover during COVID-19

Walkabout Creek Discovery Centre underwent a mini-makeover during COVID-19 and the redeveloped $1.3 million deck is open for visitors and Good to Go for the start of the long weekend.

Minister for Environment Leeanne Enoch said that by investing in this great facility, we are not only boosting the tourism industry by funding key infrastructure, but also supporting the economy, with the project creating 80 jobs.

“In total, the Palaszczuk Government has invested $3 million over three years to upgrade facilities at Walkabout Creek,” Minister Enoch said. 

“Our Government is investing $45 million in revitalising infrastructure in National Parks and State Forests to provide new opportunities for Queensland's nature-based ecotourism industry, and boost employment in regional areas.

“This is on top of the additional $8.9 million National Parks Works and Jobs Boost program, to improve existing facilities, and help support tourism and local jobs, of which $250,000 has been earmarked for Walkabout Creek for further visitor upgrades. 

“I also acknowledge the ongoing contribution of the Queensland Parks and Wildlife (QPWS) rangers across the state and for their involvement in opening this popular destination at The Gap.

“Every day these rangers go above and beyond to protect the community, our national parks and the forests, native animals and endangered species and for that, I say thank you,” Minister Enoch said.

Walkabout Creek is a popular day trip destination for locals and tourists alike, with beautiful walking tracks, a reservoir for swimming, cycle tracks, and a BMX beginner skills course.

Walkabout Creek is just 12 kilometres from the Brisbane CBD, so on this long weekend, you don’t have to travel far to experience the natural beauty of this state.  

Catering partner Cuisine on Cue will be able to reopen its doors and the new deck will once again become a social hub where visitors can enjoy the ambience of the natural D’Aguilar bush.

Cuisine on Cue Managing Director Anna Morrow said: “After the devastating effects of COVID-19 for our business, we are looking forward to welcoming visitors back to our café and creating much-needed jobs in the hospitality industry.”

“Cuisine on Cue is privileged to work alongside QPWS on this exciting relaunch in such a stunning Brisbane location,” Ms Morrow said.

Retail tenants will be protected from evictions to protect jobs unveiled by the Government.

April 09, 2020 0 Comments
Retail tenants will be protected from evictions to protect jobs unveiled by the Government.

Commercial and retail tenants will be protected from evictions under a series of measures to protect businesses and jobs unveiled by the Palaszczuk Government.
Deputy Premier and Treasurer Jackie Trad said the measures would be underpinned by $400 million in land tax relief for property owners, which must be passed on to tenants.
That $400 million comes on top of more than $3 billion in measures already announced by the Palaszczuk Government to support Queensland businesses and jobs.
“We’ve heard loud and clear the concerns of people worried about losing their home or business premises through no fault of their own, so we’ve been working hard to put protections in place to stop that happening,” Ms Trad said.
“Since February, we have announced more than $3 billion in measures to sustain businesses through the coronavirus downturn, but when it’s over, they need to know their shops and tenancies are still there.
“Whether they’ve been required to close their doors or not, many businesses have seen their cash flow dry up, making it harder to pay the rent.
“To ensure commercial or residential property owners don’t face undue hardship on their own, we will be offering a three-month rebate of land tax for 2019-20, followed by a three month deferral of land tax 2020-21 for property owners who agree to provide rent relief for tenants affected by the coronavirus downturn.”
A landowner can apply for land tax relief if they meet criteria including:
  •         the landowner rents all or part of a property to a tenant/s OR all or part of a property is currently available for lease; AND
  •         at least one tenant’s ability to pay their normal rent OR the landowner’s ability to secure a tenant is affected by the COVID-19 pandemic; AND
  •         the landowner provides rent relief to an affected tenant/s commensurate with the amount of the land tax rebate OR if the property is unable to be leased, the landowner requires land tax relief to meet their financial obligations (such as debt repayments); AND
  •         the landowner complies with new leasing requirements, even if the relevant lease is not regulated.
Property Council Queensland Executive Director, Chris Mountford, said the land tax relief was an effective way for the Government to support businesses through this crisis. 
“By granting this relief, landlords will have a greater capacity to support tenants that have been adversely affected COVID-19, taking pressure off their cash flow at this critical time,” Mr Mountford said.
“We know the circumstances that landlords and tenants are finding themselves in vary greatly. A ‘one size fits all’ approach to these challenges simply does not work.   
“Today’s announcements are a demonstration that the State Government is stepping up and supporting tenants and landlords as they work this through.  
“The Queensland Government is rightly encouraging outcomes that ensure the economic impact is shared fairly among tenants, landlords, financiers, and the Government.” 
The Deputy Premier said the ban on eviction would be underpinned by new laws.
“We’ll make changes to legislation that will ban evictions on the grounds of financial distress, prevent rent increases, except in cases where business turnover has increased, and allow leases to be extended for the term of a rent waiver that has been agreed to by property owner and tenant,” Ms Trad said.
“By working together, we can protect homes, businesses and jobs as much as possible through this downturn.”
From next Tuesday (14 April) morning people will be able to apply for land tax relief, by going to qld.gov.au/landtax
The Palaszczuk Government has also announced a package of measures to ensure residential tenants don’t lose their homes as a result of COVID-19 hardship.
Queensland will move quickly to legislate to implement protections for retail, commercial and residential tenants.
The Prime Minister has released the SME Leasing Principles During COVID-19 as outlined in the National Cabinet Mandatory Code of Conduct, as attached here.
The Palaszczuk Government will consult with stakeholders on the development of systems and implementation of the code in Queensland.
