Finally, a new school for Docklands

Ellen Sandell, State MP for Melbourne, and the Greens welcome the government’s recent funding commitment for a primary school in Docklands, and call on the government to also build a Docklands High School.

The campaign for a primary school in the Docklands has been long and hard-fought, with the local community and parents working closely with Ellen Sandell's office to pressure the Government to take action.

Today, the government announced $18.8 million in the upcoming state Budget to build a much-needed primary school in Docklands, but the Docklands community are still crying out for a high school for their kids.

Quotes attributable to Ellen Sandell:

“The Docklands Primary School is a win for our community who have fought so hard for so long, but we also need more local high schools for our kids.”

“This is great news – but our kids education doesn’t stop at grade six. We need more local high schools for our kids to attend. This Labor Government must commit to building a high school for the Docklands community, rather than pushing them to already over-full schools in other suburbs.”

“This goes to show that we can win when our community stands up together and when we have Greens MP in Parliament. I will continue working with the community to make a Docklands High School a reality.”
