About the project

We rebuilt Melba Secondary College to bring the junior and senior campuses together on one site, giving students state-of-the-art facilities.

The 2016–17 State Budget funding built new facilities, including three double-storey buildings to provide space for growing enrolments. Students are now able to collaborate in flexible modern learning spaces, and the school has gained new administration offices, a library and cafeteria.

The first stage of the rebuild of Melba Secondary College, completed in June 2018 for $18 million, won the award for Best School Project – Above $5 million at the 2018 Victorian School Design Awards .

Funding

The 2015–16 State Budget allocated $500,000 in planning funding. The school has received an additional $17.9 million in the 2016–17 State Budget.
