The Victorian Government has announced a multi-million-dollar plan to build 11 new primary schools in Melbourne’s growth suburbs.

The first five sites to be announced as part of the $191 million package are in Cranbourne, Clyde North, Pakenham, Epping North and South Morang.

The remaining six locations will be revealed the lead-up to the budget.

Education Minister Martin Dixon said the schools would be built under a public-private partnership model.

“The schools will be built by a consortium and maintained by a consortium so that the principal can work on things that matter such as education and not worry about the maintenance and the landscaping of the school,” he said.
