About the project

We have finished the first stage of Dohertys Creek P-9 College in Truganina, and it opened for its first students on day 1, term 1, 2019. Stage 1 facilities include a library, learning community, gym and performing arts centre.

We used the additional funding received from the 2018-19 Budget to build a performing arts and physical education facility.

Mainview Boulevard Family Learning Centre will be located next to Doherty’s Creek P-9 College, helping local children make a smooth transition from pre-school and reducing the number of drop-offs for some parents with kinder and school-aged children.

This school, designed by Architectus and K2LD as part of the Growth Areas Schools Project, was a winner of the 'Minister's Award for Excellence' in the 2019 Victorian School Design AwardsExternal Link .

About the project

After opening its doors for Prep-Year 6 students in 2019, the 2020 funding allowed us to build the extra facilities needed for secondary education.

We built two learning communities and multi-courts. We also refitted the specialist learning building to accommodate teaching Year 7–9 subjects.

These facilities will be ready for Year 7 students in 2022, Years 7 and 8 in 2023 and Years 7, 8 and 9 in 2024.

Funding

In 2020, the second stage of this school project shared in $438.6 million of funding for new schools.
