Tec-NQ’s new boarding accommodation facility in Rosslea will eventually accommodate 80 students and staff and has been designed with regional boarding students, and Townsville locals in mind. The facility centres around a large outdoor recreation area, with BBQ facilities, mini-golf, and basketball court, adjoining a common dining room and commercial kitchen.
The kitchen will serve double duty, catering to boarding students while also providing Hospitality trade training to boarding and day students.
Common areas throughout the facility provide opportunities for home-like social and recreational activities, while the student accommodation rooms have been designed to give each student semi-private space for their own personalisation.
Tec-NQ is a secondary school and a Registered Training Organisation all in one, offering full-time apprentice training, school-based apprentice programs and other trade training to school-aged students boarding and day students.
