Official opening of GPAC

GUESTS at the recent opening of the Glasshouse Christian College’s new Performing Arts Centre (GPAC) were impressed with the new facility that was ten years in the making.

School principal Mike Curtis generously praised all those involved in the project and the hard work and dedication of many who made it a reality.

The principal was joined by school board member Lauren Fishburn to officially declare the $9.5 million building open.

The state government contributed $2.5 million towards the project, with the Member for Caloundra, Jason Hunt, attending the event on behalf of the Minister for Education Grace Grace via a video link.

This is the third and final stage of GPAC, which includes a 600-seat performance hall, orchestra pit, retractable seating, sprung stage and specialist rooms.

For the opening day the centre was set up to serve a three-course celebratory lunch for the special guests and school supporters that was prepared in the school’s new hospitality kitchen.
