​​​​​​​​​​​COMMUNITY WORKSHOP

The Community Workshop was held on Wednesday 14 June. Thank you to everyone who attended and provided feedback. We will provide your feedback to the architects for consideration into the design of the new school.

 ​

ABOUT THE PROJECT​

We’re building a new primary school in the Craigieburn area. ​The school will accommodate up to 475 students from Prep to Year 6.​

Last year, the State Government provided funding to buy the new school site. This year, the 2017-18 State Budget provided funding for design and construction.

We’re finalising the site for the new school, and will announce the location as soon as it’s confirmed.

We’ve appointed architects, and they will develop designs for the school in consultation with the local community. Once architectural design is complete, we’ll appoint a builder.

We plan to begin construction in early 2018, and finish by the end of the year.

The new school will open for Term 1, 2019.​

FACILITIES

This is one of the new ‘greenfield’ school sites across the state where the Victorian School Building Authority will engage the community through workshops and an online survey.

Local families can have their say on the education framework, the design of the school, and the facilities required to meet the needs of the community.

With your ideas, perspective and feedback we will deliver excellence in education. See engage.vic.gov.au/schoolbuildings​ for more details.
