DELIVERING GREAT LOCAL SCHOOLS IN THE SOUTH-EASTERN SUBURBS

Families across the south-east suburbs will have access to the world-class local schools their kids deserve, with a re-elected Andrews Labor Government to open 10 new schools in the area over the next four years.

Victoria is growing and we need to plan ahead to make sure that every child has access to a great local school.

As part of the $850 million investment to be delivered by a re-elected Labor Government 10 schools are now fully funded across the south eastern suburbs. These include:

  • Pakenham Primary School, opening 2019      

  • Botanic Ridge Primary School, opening 2020

  • Casey Fields (Five Ways) Primary School, opening 2020           

  • Clyde North East Primary School, opening 2020          

  • Keysborough South Primary School, opening 2020    

  • Pakenham Henry Road Secondary, opening 2021      

  • Cranbourne West Secondary & Special School, opening 2021               

  • Clyde North Primary, opening 2022

  • Clyde North Secondary College, opening 2022                            

  • Endeavour Hills Special School, opening 2022              

This builds on the five schools - John Henry Primary School, Barton Primary School, Tulliallan Primary School, Wilandra Rise Primary School and Bridgewood Primary School - which all opened in 2017 and 2018.     

Across the state, investment from a re-elected Labor Government will see 45 schools open within the next four years.

A special planning fund for another 55 schools will also be implemented, which will ensure families can have confidence that Victoria’s education system is well prepared as the state grows.

Every child should have a good local school and the chance to succeed in life, and only a re-elected Labor Government will deliver that for kids across our outer suburbs.
