Oakleigh Education Plan

The Victorian Government is transforming local education through the Oakleigh Education Plan.

Development of the plan began in 2018, with the vision of rejuvenating and reforming education across Oakleigh – raising student engagement and community perceptions and encouraging academic drive for all students.

The Department is working with three local schools across 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 strengthened Year 6 to Year 7 transition program
  • a strengthened Year 9 to Year 10 transition program
  • a dedicated STEM professional learning plan and focus on promoting and integrating STEM across all three schools
  • clear career pathways with support through partnering with leading tertiary institutions and industry professionals.

The Department is working with key local stakeholders to identify and meet community needs. Stakeholders include schools, local government, local business and other education providers.

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.

Schools 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 three 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.
