A new school for the South

A new birth to Year 12 public school will be built in the Sellicks Beach-Aldinga region to provide 1500 students from Adelaide’s south 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 high-tech school will include a focus on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) studies to educate students for the jobs of tomorrow.

The new school will have:

  • places for 1400 reception to year 12 students
  • places for 100 special needs students
  • an onsite children’s centre with 55 places
  • state-of-the-art learning facilities.

Construction

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 south school including choosing a suitable site.
