A new school in Docklands. Children playing, laughing and chatting.

​ABOUT THE PROJECT

The Victorian Government has committed to building a primary school in Docklands.

We’ve selected a site and are beginning to design the school. The primary school site has good walking, cycling and public transport access, and is the right size to accommodate a modern primary school with outdoor space.

Community engagement

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the community engagement for a primary school in Docklands. The engagement period has now closed and we are reviewing your contributions.

Feedback from the community workshops and online survey will help inform the education framework, the design of the school and the needs of the broader school precinct.

  

Provision Review

In September 2015, the Department of Education and Training and some specialist consultants assessed the need for primary and secondary schools in Docklands.

The review covered the Docklands and the immediate surrounding suburbs of North Melbourne, West Melbourne, Melbourne, Parkville and Flemington.

You can access the reports from the School Provision Review of the Docklands Area webpage.
