Richmond opens to Southbank

08 Feb 2018

Richmond opens to Southbank Image

With an enrolment zone that takes in much of the Southbank area, local families now have a new secondary schooling option after the new Richmond High School opened last month.

Premier Daniel Andrews, Minister for Education James Merlino and Member for Richmond Richard Wynne opened the $43 million school on January 31.

The new school will cater for 650 year 7 to 12 students and is located over two sites – the Griffith Street Campus and the Gleadell Street Campus.

The school is opening in two stages starting with the Gleadell Street Campus open as of now. It includes general-purpose teaching spaces, four competition-standard netball courts (one indoor), as well as new showers and toilets, a canteen and administration area.

The Griffiths Street Campus will open in term one next year and will cater for the second cohort of year 7 students and students moving into year 8.

At the school’s opening, local member Richard Wynne said it was a proud moment for the local community.

“This is an incredibly proud day for Richmond,” he said. “The local community fought against this school’s closure and it was the community who fought for it to be built again.”
