Prahran High School

Prahran High school is due to open in 2019.

A new purpose built school for 650 students will be constructed on the former Swinburne Uni Design School site.

The current total funding for Prahran High School is $25 Million.

One of Sam’s first priorities as the Member for Prahran was to secure the high school for our community.

Sam brought parents and educators together to ensure our communities voice is heard throughout the school planning process. It is critical the new school meets the needs of local families.

CONSTITUENCY QUESTION: Prahran High School Enrolments

Mr Hibbins to ask the Minister for Education — 

My constituency question is to the Minister for Education, and I ask: what is the latest information on the new Prahran High School? Many constituents have expressed to me that they are impressed with the recently released designs for the new school, which will house 650 students over four storeys, incorporating recreation and green space within those buildings. Demolishing the existing building and building a new purpose built school was something the local community had been advocating for, and it was glad to see the designs for the new school.

Constituency Question: Prahran High School

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — (Question 7079) I recently asked Prahran residents what constituency question they would like me to ask in Parliament. Unsurprisingly the most popular topic for questions was regarding the new Prahran state secondary school. On behalf of Katie, Justin, Carissa, Katie, Tina, Kim, Morag, Geraldine and Helen, I ask the Minister for Education: what is the latest information regarding the new Prahran state secondary school? Specifically, residents would like to know when construction will start and what the finish date will be so they can plan for the secondary education of their primary school-age children; details of the funding commitment and whether a new school is fully funded; and how physical exercise will be accommodated on the school site at the old Swinburne University site.
