HELP SHAPE THE FUTURE OF EDUCATION IN ALPHINGTON

The Alphington Community is growing. We need to create a bigger Alphington Primary school.

We have identified two potential options for a new senior primary campus:

  • Building a new campus on the former AMCOR site on Heidelberg Road, or
  • Expanding the current Yarralea Street campus.

We are now looking to consult with the school community and local groups to understand the changing culture of Alphington and the area’s ongoing education needs.

3. We are considering a number of options for a new senior primary campus. We want your feedback on what option will work best for students, parents and the community.

OPTION 1: Upgrading the current Alphington Primary School campus

This would mean modernising and upgrading Alphington Primary School’s existing facilities.

This might include:

  • Building new facilities
  • Upgrading current facilities
  • Installing additional portable buildings on site.

Proceeding with this option indicates the community believes upgrades at the current Alphington Primary School campus will sufficiently address the school’s growing demand for enrolment spaces.

Benefits

Challenges

  • All students in one location
  • Upgrade current facilities
  • Likely to involve a new modern vertical building
  • Possible reduction of open space on existing site.
  • Relocatables could be used as part of the solution and/or during the construction period.

OPTION 2: A new senior primary campus

DET along with VSBA would work with developers on the AMCOR site to build a senior primary campus that would house grade 5’s and 6’s, to support up to 300 students.

Proceeding with this option indicates the community believes a new building offsite is required to address current challenges.

Benefits

Challenges

  • New modern facilities designed for 21st century learning and teaching
  • Green space on each level
  • Located opposite proposed council-owned multipurpose court, with potential to be shared between community and the school
  • Fronting Heidelberg Road
  • Students would need to move between the two campuses for some school events.
  • Parents may need to drop children off at two sites.
  • Limited open space
