Connecting children with the tools they need to thrive

Embracing the belief that every child has the right to access a meaningful education, the government in Victoria made a commitment to deliver 100 new schools between 2019 and 2026.

This project, one of the 100 schools promised by the government, involves construction of a vertical primary school in Docklands, Victoria. Slated to accommodate up to 500 students, the three-storey school includes a library, music and arts rooms, administration areas, outdoor learning terraces, and a competition-grade indoor sports court for netball and basketball. The second level of the school building includes two kindergarten rooms, administration areas, and an outdoor learning terrace. Having the kindergarten and school together will help local children make a smooth transition from pre-school and reduce the number of drop-offs for some parents with kinder and school-aged children.

The school opened in 2021 and will help alleviate enrolment pressures for surrounding schools and meet demand from a growing inner-Melbourne population.
