​Master Planning of State High Sites

Brisbane State High School is undertaking the process of master planning its four sites located in South Brisbane (3) and Carina (1).

Master plans are tangible and visible statements of what our school sites are now, what they could be in the future and what is required to reach our desired goals for each of the sites.

We have undertaken a consultative process of master planning the Edmondstone, Merivale and Vulture Street sites, as well as the Carina Playing Fields located in Fursden Road, Carina, with input and expertise from staff, parents and professionals in the area of architecture and project management.

The Master Planning Advisory Group for the Edmondstone, Merivale and Vulture Street sites includes:

  • Wade Haynes, Executive Principal, Brisbane SHS
  • Christine Collins, General Manager, Brisbane SHS
  • Graham Legerton and Chad Brown, Senior Architects, Thomson Adsett
  • David Honeywill, Project Manager, Honeywill Consulting Project Management

The Master Planning Advisory Group for the Carina Playing Fields includes:

  • Wade Haynes, Executive Principal, Brisbane SHS
  • Christine Collins, General Manager, Brisbane SHS
  • Matthew Thornton, Staff Representative, Brisbane SHS
  • Graham Legerton and Chad Brown, Senior Architects, Thomson Adsett
  • David Honeywill, Project Manager, Honeywill Consulting Project Management
  • Scott Slade, P&C President, Brisbane SHS
  • Cherie Egan, P&C Vice President Fundraising, Brisbane SHS
  • Dene Crocker, Parent Representative, Brisbane SHS
  • Selwyn Faul, Parent Representative, Brisbane SHS
  • Peter Cane, Parent Representative, Brisbane SHS

Substantial work has been undertaken and significant funds invested with feasibility studies, site surveys and hydrologist's reports commissioned and completed.  We have engaged the services of Thomson Adsett Architects who have worked with the school previously in the construction of I Block, our newest building, as well as major refurbishment work around the school.  Thomson Adsett have provided us with two Master Plans of the school sites – one covers the sites located in South Brisbane and is in draft form, and the second covers the Fursden Road site. 

The work to be done will include finalisation of the plans, receiving approval from the Advisory Group and ensuring that Local, State and Federal Governments representatives are consulted with, to ensure engagement.  Community consultation will be essential at the Carina site due to the level of work that it is planned for the site.  We anticipate that this site will be a significant sporting precinct for Brisbane East as the level of interest from outside sporting groups and medical professionals has been encouraging. 

As stated, the plans are in draft form and we hope their publication will generate much excitement and interest.
