  • Swinburne welcomes announcement that the former Prahran campus is preferred site for new secondary school
  • The Prahran site has a long history as an educational precinct

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.
