St John Fisher College, a secondary girls’ school in Bracken Ridge, has submitted plans to build a new food technology building where the students can train and improve their culinary skills.
The proposal (DA A005794488) lodged with Brisbane City Council calls for a demolition of one building to make way for two new structures that will serve as a training facility for food and design. The developers said that the project will not impact the surrounding buildings which are also part of the school’s property.
Improvements to the Kolega Cafe, which have already begun, will be incorporated into the development to provide for a better dining space with proper ventilation for the students and staff.
“The proposed buildings are designed fit for purpose, being specialist learning facilities within an existing school campus, and are considered in keeping with the existing character and amenity of the school and the surrounding locality,” the DA stated.
The new facility should be a worthy addition to a school that develops well-rounded students who excel in academics, sports, music and theatre, science and technology, and culinary.
Catering to Year 7 to 12 students, St John Fisher College, administered by Brisbane Catholic Education, has fully-equipped facilities that support the students’ various interests.
The school’s strong academic outcomes combined with vocational experiences and a strong pastoral community provide the students with the best opportunities to pursue further education or rewarding careers when they graduate.
