Over the next nine months, Mirvac will carry out a works program to develop a seven hectare site and hand it over to the Queensland government in mid 2020.

The state government will manage the design and construction of the primary school which will open in future years and have capacity for more than 1000 students.

Logan MP Linus Power said the state school site formed part of the development conditions for Everleigh.

"Both Charis (Mullen) and I have delivered funding to upgrade schools and build new ones in our growing areas," he said.

"We know that to get the right fit for Greenbank, community consultation is really mimp-ortant and we are committed to making that happen."

Jordan MP Charis Mullen said the state government was working with developers to ensure land was preserved for new state schools.

"The site in the Everleigh development is the first in a number of identified sites for future primary and high schools in this growing region," she said.

Mirvac Residential Development Queensland general manager Warwick Bible said this was a major milestone for the wider Greenbank community.

"We are thrilled to be commencing work in readiness for a future state primary school and understand there will be a lot of community members out there who echo that sentiment," Mr Bible said.

"We have been working closely with the state government to get to this point and will continue to do so as construction commences, so we can deliver the serviced site to the state as soon as practically possible.

"The school will be situated alongside 25 hectares of regional sport and recreation parks, along with walking and cycling trails and a series of neighbourhood and linear parks."

The state primary school is among a number of infrastructure projects planned for the Greater Flagstone Priority Developmenyt Area, including a future state high school four kilometres south-west of Everleigh.
