EDGARS CREEEK SECONDARY COLLEGE – NEW SCHOOL ANNOUNCEMENT

The Andrews Government is committed to building new schools in Melbourne’s population growth areas, and as part of an election commitment, funding was provided in the 2015-2016 State Budget to buy land for the Edgars Creek P-12 (secondary component). In the 2016-2017 State Budget, a further $12 million has been allocated.

A suitable site has been located and the Department of Education and Training is currently in negotiations with the vendor to purchase the land. Settlement of the land is likely to occur in January 2017.

This college is part of a whole education and community precinct which will incorporate a secondary college, primary school and community activity centre and a council reserve.
