In the 2016-17 State Budget, 35 Victorian schools shared in planning funding totalling $12 million.
This funding allowed Melton Secondary College to begin to scope and plan building works.
The current plan includes the development of a new Administration Building which will increase the school's community presence through the establishment of a welcoming and identifiable entry.
This stage of works also provides the school with sufficient on-site parking and safe pathways into the school campus for both staff and students. These works are part of an entire campus masterplan developed by ClarkeHopkinsClarke, which shows a future projection of creating new learning facilities which support contemporary pedagogical practices.
The plan will also include establishing an educational precinct for Melton Secondary College and Specialist School, which share a single site on Coburns Road in Melton. Whilst still remaining separate school campuses, the development of both schools works towards celebrates the variety of learning opportunities and experiences created in both the Secondary College and Specialist School. Through a cohesive architectural language along the front school boundary, and in the planning of shared courtyard spaces and facilities, these two schools will develop as an Education Precinct within the Melton community.
Clarke Hopkins Clarke have been appointed as the architects for the project.
