South Rock State School Opens

On 23rd January 2023, our local primary school South Rock State School opened its doors with a visit from the Honourable Grace Grace MP, Minister for Education as well as Member for Logan Linus Power MP.

The new state-of-the-art $68.6 million state school is led by Principal Mr Aaron Jones who is enjoying getting to know his students aged from Prep to Year 6 as they settle into a fantastic year of learning as well as offering students programs through community partnerships. 

Mr Jones says “as a school we are committed to seeing our students live a happy and healthy lifestyle within their community, so we are excited to launch our bike partnership with AusCycling and Revolve Recycling in coming weeks. Through this partnership our school will be gifted a library of repurposed bikes for our students to learn to ride safely on. This program also offers a chance for parents, carers and other community members to join in the program by assisting students to learn bike maintenance.”  

We can see already the school’s commitment to this program with their very own bike maintenance repair unit (pictured) installed and ready to go!  

It certainly seems to us that the school is already living its motto “Building pride, belonging to our community”.
