Rising Peaks unveiled

On Friday, 19 April, the PMSA unveiled our plans for ‘Rising Peaks’, our new outdoor education and experiential learning destination at Lake Moogerah to our school community.

We were delighted to host our Principals Andrew Cousins (Clayfield College), Sandra Hastie (Somerville House), Anna Owen (Sunshine Coast Grammar School) and Deputy Headmaster, Scott Murphy (Brisbane Boys’ College) as well as some of our senior leaders to showcase our vision for ‘Rising Peaks’ including our new brand and plans to build a purpose-built site (opening in 2025) that complements the natural environment and provides amenities that take full advantage of the outdoors.

The 6.97 ha site will provide a meaningful outdoor education and experiential learning program, with a commitment to develop student’s emotional intelligence and character through experiences beyond familiar environments.

In harnessing our vision for a curriculum based outdoor education program, the name for ‘Rising Peaks’ was inspired by the four surrounding peaks within the Moogerah Peaks National Park and its symbolism for growth and learning.

As part of our contribution to the Scenic Rim region, ‘Rising Peaks’ was also a proud sponsor of the iconic Kalbar Sunflower Festival over the weekend.

Together, these events signified an important celebration on our journey to establish ‘Rising Peaks’ as PMSA’s flagship outdoor education and learning facility.

We look forward to continuing our collaboration with the community to realise our vision.
