Ground breaking times for new Brighton High School
by Brighton Council
Construction has begun on the new Brighton High School. From 2025, the school will welcome up to 600 primary students from the surrounding areas of Bagdad, Brighton and Kempton. It will be a state of the art, modern learning facility for the region.
“Brighton has been lobbying for this school for many years and it is great to see it becoming a reality,” Brighton Mayor, Leigh Gray, stated when the first ground was broken recently. “We are thrilled to be able to work with the Government to assist this wonderful project and to coordinate our own strategy and works for the precinct surrounding the new high school.”
“Extensive community and stakeholder consultation has helped shape development of the new high school,” said Roger Jaensch, Minister for Education, Children and Youth. “It was an honour to visit the site and turn the first sod.”
The new Brighton High school is located at 1 Elderslie Road, Brighton, with the development team working closely with the Brighton Council to ensure the new high school is a facility that makes this region a great place to live, work, play and learn.
The development includes a multi-purpose hall, performing arts space, and gymnasium and is a part of the $74 million commitment to support the Brighton community.
The Brighton High School development will cause traffic disruptions to the Brighton Road and Elderslie Road junction for approximately six months from February 2023. The works will include drainage and road upgrades. For any enquiries regarding the roadworks please contact 03 6268 7000.
