Construction is underway on the brand new B-12 school at Angle Vale, providing another major jobs boost for the state’s construction industry.
Together with builds at Aldinga and Whyalla, South Australian-based builder Sarah Constructions estimates that well over 1000 jobs will be created over the life of the three projects.
The new school, located on Riverbanks Road, Angle Vale, will accommodate up to 1675 students, including 100 inclusive places for students with a disability and a 75 place children’s centre. It is set to open in Term 1, 2022.
The project forms part of the state government’s record $1.3 billion education capital works investment that is set to underpin thousands of the jobs across the state, while delivering a generational upgrade of schools across South Australia.
The proposed zone for the high school includes suburbs such as Lewiston to the north, Two Wells and Virginia to the west, and parts of Munno Para West to the east. The primary zone takes in a smaller catchment zone including parts of suburbs such as Munno Para Downs, Hillier, Lewiston, MacDonald Park and Gawler River.
A map of the proposed zone can be viewed here.
Mark Oliphant College, Gawler and District College and Angle Vale Primary School will see changes to their existing zones under the proposal.
Feedback on the proposed zone is open until Tuesday 19 May and details can be found here.
The Education Department recently reached a formal agreement with the City of Playford to share some facilities at the school with the council, including sporting fields and all-weather courts, cementing the new school as a community hub for local families.
