About the project

Saltwater P-9 College is a new school that will cater for Prep to Year 9 students. 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 .

Stage 1 facilities include a:

  • library
  • learning community
  • gym and performing arts centre.

Stage 1 is complete and opened for its first cohort of Prep-Year 6 students in term 1, 2019. Years 7 - 9 students will be enrolled at the school when the planned future stages are complete.

Saltwater Community Centre is located next to Saltwater 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.

About the project

After opening its doors for Prep-Year 6 students in 2019, the latest funding allowed us to build the extra facilities needed for secondary education. We built a learning community and a specialist building, a sports oval and multi-courts.

These new 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.
