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 $62.2 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.

Members Statement: Prahran High School

Mr HIBBINS — There is a lot of excitement in our community as progress toward the opening of the new Prahran high school continues. The new school has come a long way in the last four years, from securing a location and getting the extra funding required to construction, which is now taking shape on High Street. We now welcome the appointment of the new principal, Nathan Chisholm, who is engaging closely with our community. This school has been a real community effort, particularly by the School for Prahran community group and the new school planning group. It certainly has been one of my top priorities as the local MP. I look forward to further progress towards the school opening in 2019.
