About the project

We built a new secondary college in Pakenham. It opened in 2021 and helps the growing local population get great education close to home.

Enrolments opened for Year 7 in 2021, increasing by year level in each consecutive year.

Johanna Walker was appointed as the first principal.

School name

Edenbrook Secondary College was chosen as the school name following community consultation and discussions with Geographic Names Victoria, with consideration given to factors including public interest, relevance to the local area, and the consideration of local Indigenous languages.

The school is named after the nearby Edenbrook wetlands.

We consulted with local communities for 3 weeks from Wednesday 24 June to Wednesday 15 July 2020. Thank you for your input.

Facilities

The college opened with the following permanent buildings (which can cater for a maximum enrolment of 500 students):

  • visual arts building
  • a learning community
  • science, technology, engineering and maths building
  • 2 outdoor play courts.

The school will be equipped with temporary administration facilities (housed within the visual arts building) that include reception, combined principal and vice principal office, sick bay and general staff office and staff room.
