The YMCA is excited to be working in partnership with Mernda Park Primary School to offer children’s programs and maximise community engagement across the school facilities. The facilities being built on the same site as Mernda Park Primary - making them a part of the school community and ensuring that the transition from early childhood programs, to kinder, to primary school, is as smooth as possible – include Early Learning, 3 & 4 year old Kindergarten, Before and After School and Holiday Programs.
Watpac, as part of the Learning Communities Victoria consortium, will deliver the New Schools Project PPP for the Victorian State Government. The consortium brings together the expertise of Watpac as builder, Amber Infrastructure and Downer (formerly Spotless Group) to build and maintain 15 new government schools across Victoria, including primary, secondary and special schools, in addition to some community facilities. As Victoria’s largest new school building project, the schools will be located in the state’s fastest growing areas.
