The Victorian Government is transforming local education through the Frankston North Education Plan.
Development of the plan began in 2017, with a vision for every child and family in the Frankston North community to be successful in learning and in life – through access to better education and health and wellbeing programs from birth.
The Department is working with three local schools across early childhood, primary and secondary education, connecting and supporting them to share their individual expertise and resources.
The schools involved in the plan are:
Teaching and learning components being delivered in this plan include:
- a dedicated health and wellbeing services plan
- a select entrance sports program
- a strengthened Year 6 to Year 7 transition program
- a School Breakfast Club program across all three schools
- development of an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander education program.
The full Frankston North Education Plan (docx - 1.03mb) can be read in detail.
The Department is working with key local stakeholders to identify and meet community needs including the delivery of the Our Place model in partnership with the Colman Foundation.
What does Our Place mean to me?
The Colman Foundation is a philanthropic organisation that supports the achievement of improved social outcomes in communities.
The Department has partnered with the Foundation to establish the Our Place model at ten school sites across Victoria. The Our Place model supports an integrated learning community by creating a shared entrance between a government school and early learning centre. The model offers parents and families access to a range of services from one location such as early childhood, primary and adult education, maternal and child health services, and training and job seeking services.
What the plan means for you
Whether a student, parent, family member, carer, staff member, educator and/or member of the local community, the plan will benefit you.
The three schools and two integrated early learning centres have been working hard to deliver the objectives of the plan. There is more work to be done, and it is an exciting space to be in for the schools and the wider community.
We encourage all community members to be an active voice in the plan. It is a long-term commitment and we need the local community to be involved in the journey to ensure our goals are being met.
