Introduction

The Victorian Government allocated $3.2 million to enhance education in the Romsey area in the 2018-19 State Budget.

From this funding, $500,000 will be used to investigate and plan long-term supply of school places across Romsey, and the possibility of expanding Romsey Primary School to a Prep to Year 9 (P-9) school.

We want your help to understand the secondary schooling needs for local students.

The Department of Education will consider your feedback and population data projections from local and state authorities to determine whether Romsey Primary School should become a P-9 school.

We’re seeking your feedback from 8 October until 22 October.
