We built a new senior secondary school in the Wyndham area. The school will eventually accommodate Years 10 to 12, beginning with just Year 10 enrolments in 2020.
Homestead Senior Secondary College was originally known by the interim name of Point Cook South Senior Secondary School while it was being planned and built.
We are pleased to announce that Michael Fawcett has been appointed as the first principal of Homestead
Senior Secondary College .
This appointment follows a thorough Department of Education expression of interest process.
We held Pop Up and 'Meet The Principal' information events in September 2019.
Homestead Senior Secondary College is offering enrolments for Year 10 in 2020, with Year 11 to be offered in 2021 and Year 12 in 2022.
As the new secondary school is located on the Point Cook Homestead Road, close to the Point Cook Homestead complex (approx. 2.5km), the new name reflects this historical, aesthetic and scientific significance to the state of Victoria.
The Department of Education chose this name after consulting with local communities on the names for all schools opening in 2020. To reach a final decision, the Department considered this community feedback along with the guiding principles for naming a new school.
Possible names for all the new schools were initially shortlisted by school advisory groups, who considered factors such as public interest, relevance to the local area, and local First Nations languages. The names were also chosen to help reflect each school's unique identity, inspire local pride and make them easily locatable.
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 Awards.
