Introduction

We’re building a new senior secondary school in the Wyndham area. The 2017-18 State Budget provided $1 million funding to plan and design the new school.

The architect’s designs for the school will be developed in consultation with the local community.

What kind of school do you want?

We have heard from you and now we are reviewing comments, feedback, and ideas. We are gathering all feedback to create a report, which we'll release at a later stage.

Your feedback will be provided to the Victorian School Building Authority and the architects who will be designing the school. With your ideas and perspective, we will deliver excellence in education.

Have your say

We were keen to gather a wide range of local input into the new school design, and provided you with three options to have your say - the community workshop, the comment board, or the online survey.
