Member for Kalkallo Ros Spence MP joined the Minister for Education the Hon. Natalie Hutchins this
week to officially open Stage 2 of Elevation Secondary College, thanks to an investment of over $25
million by the Andrews Labor Government.

The school now boasts additional facilities, which include a gymnasium, performing arts and music
classrooms, food technology classrooms, and a canteen. Stage 2 also includes two new learning
communities, additional hardcourts, landscaping, and a sports oval.

Established in 2020, the first stage of Elevation Secondary College included a science, technology
and arts building, a general-purpose learning community, an administration centre and library.

School (interim name) are under construction and set to open at the beginning of next year.
