Location Profile
The Victorian Government committed to deliver 100 new schools between 2019 and 2026. This commitment includes new Greenvale Secondary School (interim name) opening in 2022.

Greenvale Secondary School (interim name)

The Victorian Government has committed to delivering 100 new schools between 2019 and 2026. This includes the new Greenvale Secondary School (interim name).

  • The school is scheduled to open on day 1 of Term 1, 2022.
  • The school is located at 2 Glencairn Drive, Greenvale, 3059.
  • Stage 1 of Greenvale Secondary School (interim name) will have an enrolment capacity of approximately 550 students.
  • In its first year of operation, the school will open to Year 7 students only, and progress by year level thereafter. Opening the school with only Year 7 enrolments will allow breadth of curriculum and pathways to be built for future years.
  • Greenvale Secondary School (interim name) is fully funded for Stage 1, with additional stages to be funded in future budgets.
  • The 2022 new school boundaries will be published online at findmyschool.vic.gov.au in 2021.
  • The new school principal is anticipated to be appointed in Term 3, 2021.
  • The state-of-the-art school will cater to the diverse needs of all students and support the needs of the growing population so students can attend a local secondary school.
  • The Greenvale Secondary School (interim name) community was consulted about the design of the school and told us it valued room for students to be active, natural outdoor areas that reflect the surrounding environment and modern learning facilities that support diverse curriculums.
  • In Term 2, 2021 (anticipated date), the community will have an opportunity to indicate their preference for the new school’s name via the Engage Victoria website. Following consultation, the final decision on school naming will be made by the Government.

Current funding allows for the following permanent facilities:

  • Administration and Learning Resource Centre building
  • STEM building
  • Learning Neighbourhood building
  • Stage 1 carpark
  • 2 x bike shelters
  • 1 x temporary hardcourt
  • Landscaped outdoor play and learning areas

At the completion of Stage 1 works, the school will accommodate a capacity of approximately 550 students.

Future stages will be delivered when Stage Budgets release additional funding and will allow for the construction of the remaining facilities:

  • Additional Learning Neighbourhood building
  • Visual Arts Building
  • Performing Arts and Physical Education (PAPE) building including indoor multi- court
  • 4 x hardcourts
  • Sports oval
  • Landscaped outdoor play and learning areas
  • Stage 2 carpark

Staged construction is used to ensure we are open and ready for the first day of school and can cater for future school growth. The buildings included in Stage 1 can provide the requisite spaces for a fully functioning school, with diversity in types of teaching spaces.

Delivering the specialised STEM building, which can be used for Visual Arts as well as the intended Science and Technology spaces, along with a general learning building and Learning Resource Centre (library) will provide learning spaces for a full curriculum from day one.

The three buildings in Stage 1 will create a good public presence for the school and provide a cohesive and integrated campus, complemented by a sports court and landscaped outdoor play and learning areas.

The Principal of Greenvale Secondary School (interim name) will have leadership qualities which ensure the effective operation of the school upon commencement, with responsibilities in the year prior to opening including to:

  • work collaboratively as part of a Planning Group and consult with the community as required to make key decisions for the establishment of the new school
  • develop a whole-of-school culture of excellence and inclusion within the educational rationale for the new school;
  • develop a vision for learning and designing a framework for pedagogical approaches which maximise the opportunities presented by the inclusive and contemporary learning spaces;
  • design a school curriculum and organisational structures that will support achievement of the school’s vision and values, including its focus on excellence and inclusion of students with disabilities;
  • develop an understanding of the design intent of the new school facilities;
  • create an identity for the school – determine the school logo and uniform;
  • select and employ staff with both the skills and mindset to ensure the vision of excellence and inclusion is achieved.
  • provide appropriate support for staff who are inspired to work collaboratively with the Principal,
    the staff and community to refine and implement the school’s vision once in operation;
  • proactively engage with the local community to develop processes and systems which set the foundations for the new school to become a community hub that links families and children to services and support, provides learning opportunities and builds a vibrant supportive community;
  • develop a strategic approach to the professional learning of staff and the ongoing development of
    the school’s culture of inclusion as it grows;
  • establish relationships and network with Principals of the other schools to support and learn from each other;
  • make any reasonable adjustments as requested by a student in accordance with the school’s legal
    obligations under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (Cth);
  • work collaboratively with the Department’s central and regional offices to select furniture, inclusive equipment, assistive technology and ICT equipment that supports the school’s vision for learning and ensures the design intent of the learning spaces is realised; and
  • establish financial and IT systems in accordance with the Department and school council requirements.

Principal recruitment will occur in Term 2, 2021 for commencement in Term 3, 2021. This will allow to provide for a six-month lead time prior to day 1, Term 1, 2022.
