About the project

We built a new secondary school in Wollert East. It opened in 2023, helping the growing local population get great education close to home. The school is open to Year 7 students only in its first year, and will progress by year level thereafter.

Melissa Lozanovski was appointed as the first principal of the school.

The school was previously known by its interim name, Wollert East Secondary School, during the planning phase. We consulted with the community on school's name from 20 June 2022 and 8 July 2022. The school is named after the suburb it is located in.

Supported inclusion school

This school is a supported inclusion school, which is a mainstream school with additional professional capabilities and facilities to cater for a higher than usual proportion of students with disability. Students with disability will receive enhanced support and high-quality education alongside mainstream students to the greatest extent possible in a safe, accessible and supportive environment.


The first stage of the school included:

  • an administration building with a library, staff offices and amenities
  • a learning neighbourhood building with general purpose classrooms, and flexible and collaborative teaching spaces
  • a science building
  • a performing arts and food technology building
  • a community hub with a competition-grade gymnasium
  • 4 outdoor hardcourts
  • a bike shed.

Funding for a second stage of the school depends on future state budgets, but plans include:

  • another learning neighbourhood
  • an art and technology building.

We planned construction so the school could open with everything it needs, including different types of teaching spaces. The second stage caters for future school growth.


In the 2018–19 State Budget, $271.7 million was allocated to schools across the state for land acquisition. This includes funding for this school.
