​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​PROJECT UPDATE​

School opening: term 1, 2018

The Learning Community Building, senior oval, and multipurpose pitch will not be completed for term 1, 2018. Construction has been delayed by a number of factors including:

  • reworking designs to retain additional trees
  • discovering underground asbestos pipework across the site
  • delayed fabrication of precast concrete panels and structural steel
  • inclement weather.

We are working a six-day week to make up for lost time, however we will still need a staged opening.

Facilities opening term 1, 2018

  • Gymnasium/Games Hall and specialist teaching spaces
  • Toilets and amenities in the gymnasium/games hall
  • Car park
  • Community oval
  • Landscaping
  • Wetlands

Students will use temporary classrooms on the multipurpose pitch for the first term. Solid hoarding will be in place around all building construction, with temporary fencing around the community oval, to ensure the safety of students.

Term 2 – Students will have full access to Learning Community Building and the senior oval.

Term 3 – The multipurpose pitch will be complete.

Please view the staging map below:

ABOUT THis 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.
