Faith Lutheran College Plainland officially opened the $7.5 million centre to the school community after years of work by current and former staff, including former principal Janelle Anderson.
The 754 Faith Lutheran students will enjoy a raft of new facilities including two multi-use courts, a gymnasium, three classrooms, amenities, storage facilities and sports office.
LCAQD Bishop, Reverend Paul Smith, spoke of the solid foundation that sport can provide to students, and how the new facility will help to strengthen the school’s foundations even further.
State Member for Lockyer, Jim McDonald said at the opening ceremony he was “forever singing the praises of the Faith Lutheran College community”. The sport centre was jointly funded by the state and federal governments and the Faith Lutheran College Council.
Faith Lutheran College Principal Mr Doug Braiden welcomed the entire school cohort to the sports hall for the first time, and acknowledged the importance of the school coming together after 2020 meant students and staff could not meet due to the coronavirus pandemic. Mr Braiden along with Mr McDonald, Mr Madden and chair of the College’s Council Mr Kerry Wall unveiled a plaque in front of the crowd.
