The Victorian Government made a commitment to deliver 100 new schools between 2019 and 2026. This includes building a new junior secondary school for young people across the Bass Coast.
The new Bass Coast school will be a Years 7-9 junior campus for
Wonthaggi Secondary College, adding to the college's two existing campuses.
The new school will open in 2022, providing families across Phillip Island, San Remo and the waterline area with more accessible public education options.
Following community consultation, we are working to finalise a site in the San Remo area, in line with community feedback.

During May and June 2019, we ran a community consultation to understand preferences for the school's location and the community's views on what is important when choosing a school, as well as local parents' current plans for secondary schooling.
The results show that proximity to home, facilities and reputation were the top three reasons to choose a school.
We also heard that the school should be centrally located and easily accessible.
