Caboolture’s new Lee Street Special School hosted an official opening event this week. Deicke Richards was pleased to attend, joining the senior students, parents and school leaders to mark the occasion. Following a great welcome to country by local elder, Lyndon Davis, which shared the Indigenous story of the Caboolture region, the morning involved a campus tour, speeches, songs, and an impressive contemporary hip hop dance performance by the whole student cohort.
The school’s Foundation Principal, Mrs Kim Kelly, and Morayfield MP Mark Ryan thanked the design team for a highly appreciated school noting that the community, DoE, and State and Federal Government Depts were all very happy with Lee Street’s excellent outcomes.
Designed by DR and constructed by Badge, the new special school has been operating since Term 1, 2020. It is located with the existing Caboolture State High School and their new vocational Agriculture and CCIC (College of Civil Infrastructure and Construction) facilities, also designed by DR. The special school will be able to access and engage directly with these facilities, fostering an integrated and diverse school campus.
