New local schools

The Andrews Labor Government is in the process of delivering more than 10 new local schools – a groundbreaking investment in educaiton across our community.

These new facilities include seven government schools:

The Labor Government has also provided $2 million to help open Oscar Romero Catholic Primary School in Craigieburn, and has provided over $8 million in funding from the Non-Government Schools Capital Fund to build new non-government primary schools in Mickleham (opening 2022) and Greenvale (opening 2023)

Additionally, the Labor Government is acquiring land for the future Merrifield West Secondary School (interim name) – Mickleham’s first secondary school.

By comparison, the previous Liberal Government failed to open one new local school in Melbourne’s rapidly growing outer northern suburbs.
