Families in the rapidly expanding City of Wyndham will be receiving first–class local schools with the unveiling of designs for the Truganina North Education Precinct.
Minister for Education Natalie Hutchins and Minister for Early Childhood and Pre–Prep Ingrid Stitt today revealed the plans for the precinct, which include Truganina North Secondary School (interim name) and Truganina North Primary School (interim name), and a co–located kindergarten.
The new precinct will make it easier for local students to transition from kinder to secondary school, since all the facilities are located in the same place. This is one of 14 new Victorian schools set to open in 2024, catering for up to 2050 students in total.
Truganina North Primary School (interim name) will be able to enroll up to 650 Prep to Grade 6 students when it opens in the first term of 2024. The school will feature an administration and library building, three learning neighborhoods, and a community hub, along with the 66–place kindergarten.
The junior campus of Truganina North Secondary School (interim name) at Everton Road will be able to take in up to 600 students, with an administration and library building, two learning neighborhoods, an arts and technology building, science and technology building, and a community hub.
The senior campus at Morris Road will have capacity for 800 senior students, and will feature an administration building, library, learning neighborhood, technology and science buildings, and a community hub.
The secondary school will open with Year 7 and Year 10 students, and then expand by year level.
The Victorian Budget 2021/22 gave Truganina North Secondary School (interim name) $491.565 million for new schools, and a further $41.178 million from the Victorian Budget 2022/23 for the next stage of construction.
