The Victorian Government recognises the importance of rejuvenating and transforming education in Melbourne's inner north-west, and announced a Place-Based Education Plan for Flemington in the 2018-19 State Budget.
The Flemington area will continue to see urban and population growth over the next five to 10 years. The Place Based Education Plan for Flemington will determine the education needs required to meet that growth, and to respond to the diverse needs of its growing community.
Progress to date
To help create a shared vision for the Flemington Education Plan, in May and June 2019 schools and local community were invited to have their say on current and future education in the Flemington area.
Findings and input from this engagement phase have been used to develop the Flemington Education Plan.
Participating local schools of the Flemington Education Plan are:
We have been working with these schools, Moonee Valley City Council and other key partners to develop the Flemington Education Plan, to make sure it meets the diverse needs of the community and education needs of all local students.
Since early 2019, the four local schools have also been working together to share resources, opportunities and strengths. Plans are in place to develop a range of joint programs and approaches to improve teaching and learning for all four schools.
