The Shepparton Education Plan will transform student outcomes by empowering all students to learn and achieve, experience high quality teaching practices and the best conditions for learning which equip them with the knowledge, skills and dispositions for lifelong learning and shaping the world around them.
The first part of the Shepparton Education Plan is to merge the four current high schools into one new school on one site. The Shepparton High School site has been chosen as the location for the new secondary school. $20.5 million has been allocated to fund Stage 1 of the new school and an Integrated Children Centre at Mooroopna. See Publications below to read the latest Education Plan and Factsheets.
Thank you to everyone who provided feedback to the phase 3: school design engagement.
We will use the information collected from the community workshops, online survey and comment board to inform the new school design and next steps of the Shepparton Education Plan.
Developed in conjunction with education experts and the local community, the plan merges four schools – McGuire College, Mooroopna Secondary College, Shepparton High School and Wanganui Park Secondary College – onto one site.
The new school will be designed by Gray Puksand and means new buildings, a wellbeing hub and more support for students with both high aspirations and more complex needs.
For all students now and into the future, the new school site offers many benefits.
This is the most central location for the young people in Shepparton and Mooroopna.
Having the school located in easy walking distance to Latrobe University and GoTAFE means our young people will be able to access hands-on practical training like mechanics, hospitality, digital design and web design − to be job ready.
Our young people can make the transition to university easier - potentially linking senior secondary programs to university studies.
Having the school located close to local businesses will help our young people build relationships with employers to gain work experience and future jobs.
Phase 1: Engagement
Our first step towards developing the Shepparton Education Plan was to talk the Shepparton community.
In June 2017, we asked the Shepparton community what the key challenges are facing young people in Shepparton, and how we can improve education outcomes.
Here is a snapshot of our three week formal consultation process:
After reviewing the comments, feedback, and ideas we produced a report and factsheet which formed the foundation for future community engagement and planning.

Phase 2: Engagement
A second round of engagement was undertaken over a four week period during September and October 2017. We presented four options for local secondary school provision for feedback from the community:
We sought the community's view on the benefits and challenges of each option. We asked people to consider how well the options would meet the Education State objectives (learning for life; happy, healthy and resilient kids; breaking the link; pride and confidence in our schools) and specific project goals.
During this period we spoke to or heard from more than 400 people through a range of activities in the local area and online. We analysed more than 1,880 individual comments.
In December 2017, following community consultation and consideration, the Government endorsed the Shepparton Education Plan Strategic Advisory Committee's recommendation to create one new secondary school on one campus
