Caboolture’s new Lee Street Special School officially opened this week. We were pleased to attend, joining senior students, parents and school leaders to mark the occasion. Following a great welcome to country by local elder, Lyndon Davis, who shared the First Nations 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 Kim Kelly and Morayfield MP Mark Ryan thanked the design team for a highly appreciated school, noting the community, Department of Education and state and federal government departments were all happy with Lee Street’s excellent outcomes.
Designed by Deicke Richards and constructed by Badge, the new 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 Deicke Richards. The special school will be able to access and engage directly with these facilities, fostering an integrated and diverse school campus.
