The Victorian Government committed to opening 100 new schools between 2019 and 2026. This includes a new primary school in North Melbourne, which will open in 2023 to ensure it meets the needs of the growing population to access great education close to home.
North Melbourne Hill Primary School (interim name) will be an innovative new vertical school located on Molesworth Street, North Melbourne.
The school is set to add exciting new amenities to Melbourne's inner north and west, with construction of the school expected to start mid-2021.
These include a large, landscaped playground offering a diversity of play and recreational experiences for children, an outdoor stage, tiered seating and flexi-space for events and performances; along with a gymnasium suited to competition grade basketball and netball. Both areas are designed to share with the community outside of school hours.
A kindergarten for three- and four-year-old children will be built on level five of the school, incorporating two rooms and opening onto generous outdoor learning and play spaces.

On 16 December we held a virtual information session, providing local residents with the opportunity to join in a conversation with Chris Keating, CEO of the Victorian School Building Authority about the new school.
