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.

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.


 

​​​​​COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

Earlier this year, we asked the local community about their aspirations and ideas for a primary school in Docklands. ​

Community feedback received during the community engagement stage was collected and given to the architects to incorporate into the school building design. ​​


The Community Engagement Report below provides a summary of these key findings from feedback we gathered online or at community workshops. ​
