Upgrade and Modernisation
About the project
We are building a 2-court competition-grade gym for the school. This will replace the school's recreation centre at Fritsch Holzer Park. We are also upgrading the oval.
Why was the site chosen for the project?
The new 2-court competition-grade gym will be built at 120 Camberwell Road. This site, part of Fritsch Holzer Park, is owned by the Department of Education and zoned as a campus of Swinburne Senior Secondary College. The site is roughly 2 km from the college's main campus on Burwood Road. The school already uses the recreation centre at the site for PE classes.
Will community groups have access to the new facilities?
Yes, they will benefit the students of Swinburne Senior Secondary College and the wider community. We will continue to update the community about the new facilities and how they will be used as the project progresses.
How can I find out more?
We will continue to provide you with detailed updates as the project progresses.
In the 2021–22 State Budget, the school received $11.503 million. In 2022, the school was allocated $3.226 million. The Commonwealth Government allocated an additional $8 million for the Fritsch Holzer Park redevelopment.
