New Bellbird Park school drives property demand

The newest school in Greater Springfield and Ipswich region, Bellbird Park State Secondary College, is driving young families to the neighbourhood and fuelling property demand in the sought-after area.

Situated in the heart of AVID Property Group’s Brentwood Forest, the secondary college is one of only four new schools to open in Queensland in 2017.
AVID General Manager Bruce Harper said the established community at Brentwood Forest was a major draw card for families looking to buy in the catchment area of Queensland’s newest high school.

“Facilities like this school and the new childcare centre proposed for the area are really drawing young families to Brentwood Forest” Mr Harper said.
“The secondary college is a welcome addition to the community, providing young families in the Bellbird Park area with the opportunity of a great education for their kids, close to home.”

Local carpenter and dad Corey Smith said location was a major deciding factor when choosing Brentwood Forest.

“Our little girl started Year 7 at the new school. She is really happy – she loves it so far,” Mr Smith said.

“We are only two streets away from the new school and have access to everything we need, which is ideal for my family.

“We’re in a great spot, on a hill and the community at Brentwood is really homely. The convenience of being so close to the school will make our lives so much easier.”
Bellbird Park State Secondary College Principal Michael West said the school will provide students with a range of first class facilities.

We have three hospitality kitchens, a robotics studio, an art and music precinct, and design technology workshops where students will be able to create projects with the aid of lasers,” Mr West said.

“In two years’ time construction will finish on a human movement sports centre, a performing arts complex and more classrooms.
Our college is fully wireless, which allows digital technologies to be integrated into all classes and all subjects.”

Block sizes available in Brentwood Forest’s latest release range from an easy care 250m2¬†to 563m2¬†family-sized blocks, which means there are options to suit all living choices and lifestyles.

Land prices start from $172,000 for blocks that are levelled and retained in an established community, close to a vast range of amenities.
