Mr HIBBINS (Prahran)—I recently organised a round table of local school principals, teachers, school council members and parents to discuss the new Prahran state secondary school. We were joined by the CEO of Melbourne Polytechnic, Rob Wood, who shared his vision for the Prahran campus and the potential of having the secondary school on the site as part of a creative educational hub. Local parents are passionate about having a high-quality state secondary school in the Prahran community and welcome the government’s commitment to build the new school.

However, parents have voiced their concerns about the lack of communication from the government, particularly around the construction, opening date and intake of the school. Members of the community wants to be involved in setting up the new school to make sure it meets the needs of the local students and families. They want to know when it is going to open so they can plan for the future. Local families are moving out of the area because of the lack of a public high school and uncertainty about the new school. Prahran should be a place where all types of families can live. I urge the education minister to meet with local parents to discuss the new school and give certainty to the Prahran community.
