Although still considered relatively young compared to its Brisbane counterparts, Sunshine Coast Grammar School has proudly launched their Foundation this month, to help raise significant funds for key future projects, for the benefit of current and future students as well as the Sunshine Coast community at large.
One of the first proposed projects by the Grammar Foundation is the upgrade of the Sporting Precinct including a state of the art Aquatic Centre which will house an Olympic size swimming pool built to FINA specifications.
Principal at Sunshine Coast Grammar School, Mrs Maria Woods, is excited about the launch of the Foundation which seeks to raise funds for these signature projects which will continue to provide outstanding facilities for current and future students to excel.
“Education in the modern world is ever changing and our primary goal is to partner with families to enable students to achieve and be the very best they can be,” said Mrs Woods.
The proposed sporting precinct will also provide the School and community with the opportunity to leverage off the upcoming Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast in 2018. The state-of-the-art facilities will aim to attract touring teams to the region as a training base, ahead of the main event, which holds the potential to help stimulate the local economy.
Mrs Woods is thrilled by the level of interest and support the Foundation has already received and would further like to encourage community involvement to help get this project off the ground.
“We believe that the launch of the Grammar Foundation is indeed the dawn of a new era of development which is both exciting and will position us as the leading school on the Sunshine Coast,” said Mrs Woods
“Through the Grammar Foundation we are hopeful that this first project will not only provide students at the School with the best possible opportunities to excel but envisage that it will provide the community with first class sporting, training and recreation facilities with the ability to attract top sporting teams to the region.”
“This initiative along with a growing number of other projects in the region is sure to have a knock on effect in terms of real tourism dollars and will continue to establish the Sunshine Coast as a sporting hub and training destination for future generations.”
