Imagine waving goodbye to the kids as they walk or pedal safely off to school on the linear park trail, right at your doorstep…
In 2021, that could be a reality.
Kings Baptist Grammar School (KBGS) is planning to build a second campus, right here at Newenham.
A 5-hectare site within Newenham has been proposed for the ELC – Year 12 campus and community shared sporting and recreation ovals which will create a centre for academic and extra-curricular excellence synonymous with KGBS.
Building on their strong reputation for academic excellence, performing arts, and sporting achievements at their Wynn Vale campus, KGBS is joining forces with Mount Barker Baptist Church to offer a second campus and the same learning opportunities in the Adelaide Hills.
Expected to open in 2021, the school will offer ELC – Year 2 classes with additional year levels added in subsequent years. At capacity, the school is expected to cater for approximately 1200 students from ELC through to Year 12.
The Mount Barker District Council, together with KBGS, will share use of the adjoining sports and recreation reserves located on Bollen Road.
These reserves will be easily accessed via the Mount Barker Linear Trail that winds through Keith Stephenson Reserve – connecting students and families from Laratinga wetlands all the way to Newenham.
Kings Baptist Grammar School will be a wonderful addition to the Newenham community as it aligns perfectly with the wellbeing philosophy and promotes diversity for parents when choosing an education for their children; all while bring Newenham’s beautiful, natural environment into the classroom.
We look forward to the arrival of King’s Baptist Grammar School, but in the meantime there are numerous education facilities nearby, including pre-schools, primary schools, high schools and adult education facilities. Read more about them here.
