The name of the new secondary school opening in Craigieburn in 2020 has now been chosen, following local community consultation.

Member for Yuroke Ros Spence today announced the official name for the new school as Elevation Secondary College, which was formerly known by its interim name of Craigieburn South Secondary School.

A School Advisory Group for each school provided input into the naming process and suggestions for possible names based on factors including public interest, relevance to the local area, and the consideration of local indigenous languages.

The Labor Government sought the community’s feedback on the proposed names and suggestions on alternative names as an opportunity to shape the identity of new schools.

As a result of this process, Elevation Secondary College has been chosen as the name for this new school.

It is part of the school building boom that will see 100 new government schools open by 2026. The Labor Government has invested $5.6 billion to deliver more than 1,400 school upgrades, supporting over 7,500 construction jobs for Victorians.
