Swinburne University of Technology today welcomed the Victorian Government’s announcement that the university’s former Prahran campus is the preferred site for a new secondary school in Prahran.
“The Prahran site has a long history as an educational precinct and so it is fitting that the Victorian government would seek to locate a new secondary school there,” Swinburne’s Vice-Chancellor, Professor Linda Kristjanson said.
“We look forward to working closely with the Victorian Government to deliver on a high school on this site.”
The site consists of a six storey building with approximately 5500 square metres of floor area and a large car parking area.
It has good potential for redevelopment to create the facilities and amenities required for a modern inner-city secondary school.
The National Institute of Circus Arts and Melbourne Polytechnic currently operate from the Prahran site.
