July 31 forum on Prahran Secondary School – save the date

590 orrong road armadale

Forums can be more exciting than one might expect.

This came today from MP for Prahran Clem Newton-Brown. If you want a school at 590 Orrong Road (not residential towers) you need to join us there on July 31.

I am pleased to inform you that the Prahran Secondary School Taskforce has now been established.

This Taskforce (comprising myself and Department of Education staff) will soon be putting together a Project Working Group to advise on all aspects of the establishment of the new secondary school.

Letters were sent last week inviting each of the local primary school Principals to be on the Project Working Group, together with one parent representative from each school. There will also be representatives from City of Stonnington and City of Port Phillip Councils.

There will be opportunities for all community members to have input into this process and the first community consultation and update will be held this month.


Date:               Thursday 31st July, 2014

Time:               6:30pm

Location:        Stonnington Primary School, Hornby Street, Windsor


The first task will be selecting a site for the new school and the aim is to have this finalised by the end of the year. The site options will be presented at this first community consultation (please feel free to email me with any ideas prior to then).

Thank you to all who have expressed interest in the past on this very important issue for our local community. I look forward to seeing you on 31st July.

Sign up then spread the word.

We’ll see you at the forum but meanwhile you and everyone you know needs to sign our petition to have the new school built in the right location – 590 Orrong Road.
