A world-class education system is being created in Frankston North, with plans to build a $26.2 million state-of-the-art education precinct by 2021.
The Frankston North Education Plan includes more early learning centres, smoother student transition at each stage of education, more focus on post-school pathways, improved access to technology, better facilities, higher quality teaching, community spaces and more.
The plan is a partnership between the Victorian Government, the Coleman Foundation, Frankston City Council, Aldercourt Primary School, Mahogany Rise Primary School and Monterey Secondary College.
The Victorian Government is investing $26.2 million for new facilities, resourcing the Centre of Excellence and supporting school staff to improve outcomes. The Colman Foundation is investing in the Our Place model and the City of Frankston is investing in early learning services and support.
Our Place is a model developed by the Colman Foundation to help transform school communities. The Our Place team will be coordinating health and family support services, before and after school programs and adult education opportunities together at each of the three schools.
Construction at all three schools is due to commence in January 2020. Once complete, the project will help ensure Frankston North families have access to high quality education at every stage, regardless of background or circumstance.
