SHEPPARTON EDUCATION PLAN

PHASE 4 UPDATE FOR SCHOOL COMMUNITIES

This is an update regarding the Shepparton Education Plan, in particular the secondary school component of this project.

All families with students in years four to ten should have received a copy of the Master Plan for the new secondary school recently. This brochure provides an image of the Master Plan for the school and some information regarding the proposed design.

We understand that families will be seeking regular updates regarding the Shepparton Education Plan and we are committed to providing these.

There are some Frequently Asked Questions on the Engage Victoria website which we will continue to update as the Shepparton Education Plan progresses.

The current Frequently Asked Questions provide information regarding the House model, transition for students, transportation arrangements, and school uniform.  We are working hard to progress further with other aspects of the school’s design which will incorporate not just the infrastructure; but also the school house model, educational and curriculum design, and an integrated student health, wellbeing and support approach.  https://engage.vic.gov.au/SheppartonEducationPlan

The most frequently asked question from the community has been regarding the logistics of managing the students on one campus. With the release of the Master Plan we have been able to represent how this will look more clearly through the House model which will be a number of multi-storey buildings across the site. This model has been used at a number of schools throughout Victoria with great success, particularly at Dandenong High School.

We have also developed a short video regarding the Shepparton Education Plan – available here. https://youtu.be/il6T3C5eNCo

The Shepparton Education Plan is an opportunity for schools, families, education providers and community agencies to be involved in a transformational project to improve educational outcomes for our young people in an inclusive and supportive environment. I encourage you to participate in future community and/or school engagement activities, and check the above website regularly for updates.
