Official opening of performance hall

GLASSHOUSE Christian College’s 600-seat performance hall will be officially opened on Friday, August 20 by the Member for Caloundra, Jason Hunt, on behalf of the Queensland Minister for Education, Grace Grace.

This is the third and final stage of the Performing Arts Centre and comprises a 600-seat performance hall, orchestra pit, retractable seating, sprung stage and specialist rooms.

The official opening will be held in the Glasshouse Performing Arts Centre’s three-storey glass foyer, followed by student performances and a delicious three-course meal prepared in the school’s new hospitality kitchen.

Stage one, completed in 2019, includes large and small purpose-built group and individual music tuition spaces, dedicated primary and secondary rehearsal spaces and a recording studio. That stage of the work also included covered sports courts, a new gym and classroom on the northern oval.

Stage two, completed in 2020 , includes dance and drama studios, an industrial hospitality kitchen as well as a classroom and staffroom.

School principal Mike Curtis said the arts had a bright future at Glasshouse Christian College.

“I can’t wait to see our students excelling in these beautiful new facilities,” he said.
