We, the undersigned, urge the Victorian Government to take immediate action to open a Secondary school in the Coburg area. Coburg has a “Big Black Hole” as far as secondary schools are concerned because: • There is not one open-entry Secondary School in the area • There are 22 primary schools in the area • Families are are moving away from Coburg to get access a secondary school for their children • Children graduating from primary schools are being split up into many different secondary schools • The Moreland Community Survey showed “lack of schools" was number 5 of the top 10 issues. • Under the “Coburg 20/20” plan, there will be 5000 new homes in the area (not the including Kodak and Pentridge developements) • Coburg and Pentridge developments are bringing many new families into the area • There has been a 20% increase in birthrate across the city of Moreland placing future pressure on schools


High School for Coburg are a group of parents who have formed for one purpose: to open a Secondary School in the Coburg area. We started small, but have now more than 950 families supporting us and are growing fast. We aim to lobby the government to open a secondary school as soon as possible that can cater for all children coming out of primary schools. To succeed we need to hear from as many parents as possible who would like to have a secondary school in our area.
