​​We are delivering a $10 million transformation that will enhance the school with 21st century flexible learning spaces.

City of Melbourne is also working in partnership with the Victorian Government to provide the Carlton Early Years and Family Services Centre within the school.

This project brings education and care, maternal and child health, parenting services and playgroups under one roof. 
Students, teachers and the wider community will be able to start using the new facilities at the beginning of the 2019 school year.




We have appointed Law Architects  to design this project.



We have appointed Building Engineering Pty Ltd.



We’re redesigning each floor to improve functionality, and provide a variety of spaces to support modern education practices such as team teaching and collaborative learning.

The entrance for the school and new early learning centre off Palmerston St will include landscaping and an informal gathering area for parents.

We’re also planning outdoor covered learning spaces. These areas include a green wall, which will provide attractive shaded area for students and staff.

The ground floor will include specialist facilities for subjects such as art and music, and will also accommodate a new canteen. The new Carlton Early Years and Family Services Centre will provide an early learning centre with playgroup, childcare and kindergarten facilities and other community spaces provided in partnership with the City of Melbourne.

City of Melbourne will complete the final section of streetscaping works for the school in Palmerston Street, and details will be  communicated mid-2018.
