We’re replanting – 8,623 new trees, plants and shrubs to be exact!
This includes 518 new trees, exceeding our commitment to provide ‘2 for 1’ replacement of any trees we had to remove for construction. This is part of a replanting schedule and landscape plan developed in partnership with local conservation groups and the Bayside City Council.

ABOUT THE PROJECT
The new college will provide a much needed state-of-the-art school for 650 Years 7 to 12 students.
It will have first-class sporting facilities built in partnership with the Melbourne Cricket Club (MCC). These will be shared by the club, the college and the wider community.
The project will revitalise a rundown site to create facilities and an outdoor environment that can be enjoyed by everyone for generations to come.
The school will open its doors to Year 7 students in Term 1, 2018.
A New School Planning Group – made up of a cross section of government, parents, educational providers and the community – meets regularly to oversee progress and advise the VSBA.

- Indoor competition-grade netball/basketball court
- Outdoor courts
- Senior Oval (160m x 145m)
- Community Oval (140m x 115m)
- Multi-Purpose Pitch (110m x 75m)
- Environmental features are embedded in the school design. This includes developing a wetland to provide educational opportunities and environmental benefits.
The architect for this project is ClarkeHopkinsClarke.
The builder for this project is Ireland Brown Constructions.

The initial enrolment will be for Year 7 only.
Applications opened in term 1, 2017 through communication with local primary schools. Primary schools are responsible for ensuring each Year 6 student has a place in a secondary school for Year 7.
