The new primary school in Springfield West has now been given its official name — the Spring Mountain State School. Prior to the official naming of the school, it was called Springfield West State School.

The school is part of the $1.51 billion Queensland Schools Project Public Private Partnership with Plenary Schools. The partnership aims to deliver a number of Queensland schools and the Spring Mountain State School is the last one that is being built under the project.

The project has schools delivered at the following areas across southeast Queensland:

  • Pimpama
  • Burpengary
  • Pallara
  • Ripley Valley
  • Springfield
  • Griffin
  • Bellbird Park
  • Caboolture
  • Redbank Plains

Plenary Schools will construct, design, commission, partially finance, maintain and deliver facilities management services for the schools over a concession period of 30 years. The construction of the schools started in 2014.

The school’s name was inspired by the location of the school, which is located on the corner of the Spring Mountain Boulevard. It was the top name choice at several public meetings thus the final decision of using the name. Other names suggested were Springfield Rise and The Rise State School.

Spring Mountain State School will officially open in 2019 and will accommodate 760 students. It has a maximum capacity of 900 with 30 classrooms, a music and science block, resource centre, administration building, multipurpose hall, tuckshop and uniform shop, facilities officer’s room and an oval.

Also, in July 2018, Cherie Moore was announced as the principal of the new school. She was the principal at the Moggill State School and Runcorn Heights State School.

Currently, the school is working with locals to create the school’s motto and uniform. They have released a uniform concept design and is also discussing the school’s vision statement.
