About the project

We’re building a new specialist school in Werribee. It will open day one of Term 1 in 2024 and help the growing local population get a great education close to home.

It will be able to enrol up to 148 students.

The school will provide educational programs for students with mild to profound intellectual disability.

The new school principal is expected to be appointed by Term 2, 2023.

A full enrolment policy providing detailed entry eligibility criteria will be available in 2023, once a principal is appointed.

The community will be able to help choose the new school’s name via the Engage VictoriaExternal Link website. Following consultation, the school’s name will be announced in Term 3, 2023.

Design consultation

Across late 2021 and during early–mid 2022, we consulted with local Traditional Owners, represented by the Wadawurrung Traditional Owners Aboriginal Corporation to endorse the design of this new school.

We sought feedback and advice on:

  • local Indigenous plantings
  • cultural stories and histories
  • translations of Indigenous words
  • design elements that could enhance cultural education and understanding
Funding

In the 2022–23 State Budget, the school shared in $527.233 million allocated for new schools.
