Students in classroom

Twelve new schools opening in 2023 have their official names and are on track to welcome their first students for Term 1 next year.

What are the new school names?

These new schools are among 13 to open their doors to Victorian students and families in 2023. North Melbourne Primary School’s new Molesworth Street campus will also open in 2023.

How were the names selected?

School names were chosen following community consultation and discussions with Geographic Names Victoria. Factors taken into consideration included public interest, relevance to the local area and local Indigenous languages.

You can find out more about each of the schools including their new principals and enrolment details on our project pages.
