A new birth to Year 12 public school will be built in Munno Para to provide 1675 students from Adelaide’s north with greater access to high quality schooling.
The new school is being built to meet projected enrolment demand coming from strong population growth in the area.
This new state-of-the-art school will include a focus on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) studies to educate students for jobs of the future.
The new school will have:
- 1500 places for reception to year 12 students
- 100 inclusive spaces for students with disability
- 75 places in an onsite children’s centre
- state-of-the-art learning facilities.
The school will be constructed using a public private partnership (PPP) process. This is an arrangement where the state government and private sector work together to finance, design, construct, operate (non-curriculum) and maintain the school.
The private sector will construct and then maintain the school providing services like cleaning and lawn mowing, while the public sector will provide education and care programs to the students.
Planning is underway for the new north school including choosing a suitable site.
