Education Minister Grace Grace and Member for Caloundra Jason Hunt visited the $127.5 million Baringa State Secondary College prior to the arrival of about 200 Year 7 and 8 students and their teachers.
Baringa foundation principal Mr Matt Samson said he was delighted and proud to take the helm of the new school.
“The whole community has been eagerly awaiting the opening of Baringa SSC and are looking forward to making the most of the fabulous facilities on offer for students,” Mr Samson said.
“One of our school’s best features is a state-of-the-art lecture theatre which will allow us to have university-style lectures for students and is the perfect venue for guest speakers, further enhancing the quality educational experiences we can offer.”
