​​​​​​​​PROJECT UPDATE

The Shepparton High School site has been chosen as the location for the new secondary school.

Developed in conjunction with education experts and the local community, the plan merges four schools – McGuire College, Mooroopna Secondary College, Shepparton High School and Wanganui Park Secondary College – onto one site.

The new school will be designed by Gray P​uksand​ and means new buildings, a wellbeing hub and more support for students with both high aspirations and more complex needs.

For all students now and into the future, the new school site offers many benefits.

  • This is the most central location for the young people in Shepparton and Mooroopna.
  • Having the school located in easy walking distance to Latrobe University and GoTAFE means our young people will be able to access hands-on practical training like mechanics, hospitality, digital design and web design − to be job ready.
  • Our young people can make the transition to university easier - potentially linking senior secondary programs to university studies.
  • Having the school located close to local businesses will help our young people build relationships with employers to gain work experience and future jobs.

SHEPPARTON EDUCTION PLAN

The Shepparton Education Plan will transform student outcomes, by empowering all students to learn and achieve, experience high quality teaching practices and the best conditions for learning which equip them with the knowledge, skills and dispositions for lifelong learning and shaping the world around them.

The first stage of the Shepparton Education Plan is to merge the four current high schools into one new school on one site.

About the Project

The Victorian Government is developing a long-term plan to transform education in Shepparton and Mooroopna.

After months of detailed community consultation and engagement, the Victorian Government has endorsed a recommendation to create a new one-campus secondary school in Shepparton.

Shepparton High School, McGuire College, Mooroopna Secondary College and Wanganui Park Secondary College will merge to ensure local secondary students have access to the highest quality education.

The Shepparton Education Plan Advisory Committee considered feedback and advice from working groups, education experts and hundreds of community members as part of the consultation before recommending the merger.

This decision is a crucial step in the long-term plan to transform education across Shepparton and Mooroopna.

​MOOROOPNA SECONDARY COLLEGE

To further support Mooroopna Secondary College students, in 2018, a team of specialist educators will be embedded in the school to support to the college’s leadership and teaching team and their students.

With the new school to be built in Shepparton, this provides an opportunity to plan for the future of the current Mooroopna Secondary College site. Options for this site will continue to be developed throughout early 2018.


Community Engagement

We are going to be consulting on the new school design in May.

An online survey and comment board will open on Monday 14 May and run until Wednesday 6 June. Community engagement workshops will be held in Shepparton and Mooroopna the week starting the 28 May.

​To stay up to date on the Shepparton Education plan:

In June, we asked you to help us understand the needs, challenges and aspirations of your community.  We held nine workshops and focus groups, had over 2,000 visits to our website, and analysed more than 4,750 individual comments to ensure we heard what you had to say. We then released the comprehensive ‘What We Heard’ report and summary factsheet so that everyone could access the findings. 

In September and October 2017, we asked for your feedback on options for secondary education. Over four weeks we hosted a series of pop-up information sessions, community workshops and an online survey. We heard from more than 300 people, and analysed almost 2,000 individual comments.
