Today the state government announced that an agreement could not be reached to secure the preferred deaf school site for the new Prahran State Secondary School and will instead be pursuing the Swinburne site.

The Government must now begin formal community consultation with local school principals, educators and families to set up the Prahran State Secondary School.

By engaging with local community, the new school has the potential to be an accessible high quality state school that is a shining example of public education.

It is disappointing that the government has missed out on the deaf school site which was identified as the best site through the assessment process. They must release the feasibility study into the deaf school site in the interests of transparency and accountability.

There has been a lack of communication from the government on the progress, location and opening date of the new school.

This needs to change and I am calling on the government to immediately begin formal community consultation to allow the local community's voice to be heard and to be kept up to date on the progress of the new school.
