School planning committee meets

12 Nov 2013

School planning committee meets Image

The work behind the scenes to make the school site at Ferrars St a reality keeps ticking along with the planning committee holding its second meeting in October.

The planning committee for the school at Ferrars St met with principals and parents from surrounding schools to help gauge the level of infrastructure the school would require.

The team discussed options such as basketball courts, running track, swimming pool, community kitchen and garden and a community library.

The committee comprises representatives from the Department of Education, the City of Port Phillip, the Department of Transport and Infrastructure and lobby group Two Schools Now.

Planning committee and Two Schools Now member Marie Walters said the meetings had been progressing well and that Two Schools Now was pleased to be included.

“Two Schools Now is happy to be part of the process to build this much-needed school. There are some very experienced people on the planning committee, which is important because all ideas and ingenuity are required to negotiate the best result for the community,” Ms Walter said.

“The committee meetings have been fruitful with lots of ideas thrown into the ring, although the timetable is very tight,” she added.

Ms Walters also explained that Two Schools Now welcomed community input, even before that stage of the planning process was reached.

“Once draft plans for the school are available, we will be seeking feedback through more formal channels such as community surveys but please do not feel you have to wait until then – if you have ideas, be in touch.”

You can reach Two Schools Now via email ferrarstreet@gmail.com

The school is expected to be complete by 2016.
