Woodlea, has welcomed its first school, with Bacchus Marsh Grammar opening its doors to 650 students on Monday February 4.
Bacchus Marsh Grammar is one of the largest independent schools in the state, growing by over a thousand students in the last seven years and 500 in the last two years, with the Woodlea campus taking the crown as the largest new independent primary school in the state’s west.
Woodlea, a joint venture between Victoria Investment and Properties (VIP) and Mirvac is a 7,000-lot master-planned community in Rockbank which launched in 2015, and is currently home to 2,800 residents.
Bacchus Marsh Grammar Principal Andrew Neal said the decision to open a campus within Woodlea was not a difficult decision, due to shared values of community and design.
“We chose Woodlea due to its emphasis on design, community and the sheer professionalism of the joint venture between VIP and Mirvac.
“Alongside dedicated teaching staff, we believe the main building will be a feature primary school both in design and innovative specialist facilities for teaching STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).
“Furthermore, the array of landscaping and additional facilities will set a new standard for schools in the west, with our overarching vision to provide the best possible academic and rounded education to the young people of the west.”
Of the 650 students who commenced this year, 10 per cent of those are said to be Woodlea residents, with this number only expected to grow as the suburb continues to flourish.
As well as the Bacchus Marsh Grammar primary campus, Woodlea’s master plan provides for an additional two P-6 public primary schools and a public secondary school.
Woodlea Project Director Matthew Dean said it was important for Woodlea residents to have access to high quality education in order to give their children the best possible start in life, right on their doorstep.
“Bacchus Marsh Grammar has a strong reputation for being a high achieving school and as they already have strong ties within the local area, it was a natural fit to have a Woodlea campus.
“Further to this, we understand the importance of choice when it comes to choosing an education provider, therefore Woodlea offers residents a selection of quality private and public schools,” he said.
The Bacchus Marsh Grammar Woodlea campus will offer Early Learning, Junior (prep to year 4) and middle school (year 5 and 6) with the campus eventually operating through to year 8 as the student population grows.
