Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — (12 411) 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.

Now parents and families are very keen to know more — particularly when enrolments will be open and whether the first intake will only be year 7s or whether some other year levels or all year levels will be included. Draft zones were recently released and families are interested to know when will they be finalised and how strictly zoning will be enforced come enrolment time. My constituents also want to know when construction will start, if the current budget is finalised and how the school will collaborate and integrate with the neighbouring Prahran campus of the Melbourne Polytechnic, the National Circus Institute and the wider community.
