HELP NAME CRAIGIEBURN’S NEW SECONDARY SCHOOL

The Andrews Labor Government is giving the Craigieburn community the chance to have their say on the name of a new government school opening next year. Member for Yuroke Ros Spence said the Victorian School Building Authority would consult with local communities on naming new schools currently under construction and set to open in 2020. This will include choosing a permanent name for the new secondary school opening in Craigieburn, currently known as Craigieburn South Secondary School. Community engagement will begin in Term 2, 2019, and people will be able to provide feedback across multiple channels such as online and social media. These new schools are part of the Labor Government’s school building boom that will see 100 new government schools open over eight years. Locally, this includes Aitken Hill Primary School, which opened earlier this year in Craigieburn, a new primary and secondary school in Greenvale, and new primary schools in Mickleham and Kalkallo. The Labor Government has invested more than $3.8 billion to deliver new schools and more than 1,300 school upgrades, supporting more than 5,000 construction jobs for Victorians. The Labor Government is ensuring every child has a great local school and a great start in life. Quotes attributable to Member for Yuroke Ros Spence: “We want Craigieburn residents to help shape their new secondary school, right down to the school’s name.” “I encourage local residents to start brainstorming school names that are unique to our community.”
