Wyndham families are one step closer to accessing the education they deserve with the appointment of Paris Spencer to lead the Wyndham South (Riverwalk) Primary School, which is set to open in 2020 thanks to the Andrews Labor Government.

Paris Spencer is a highly motivated and passionate educational leader, who has demonstrated a strong commitment to driving school improvement and improving student outcomes. She fosters a highly collaborative and inclusive school culture, which is conducive to educational excellence.

The new Principal was appointed following a thorough Department of Education process to select one of Victoria’s best and brightest educators to lead the school.

New schools will open next year in Ballarat, Casey, Greater Dandenong, Greater Geelong, Hume, Mitchell and Wyndham. Principals have now been appointed to all new schools, which are currently known by their interim names, include:

  • Armstrong Creek West Primary School
  • Botanic Ridge Primary School
  • Casey Fields (Five Ways) Primary School
  • Clyde North East Primary School
  • Craigieburn South Secondary School
  • Davis Creek Primary School
  • Keysborough South Primary School
  • Lucas Primary School
  • Point Cook South Senior Secondary School
  • Wyndham South (Riverwalk) Primary School

A new school campus for Beveridge Primary School is also under construction and will open next year with the current principal to oversee both campuses.

The new schools opening in 2020 are part of the Labor Government’s school building boom that will see 100 new government schools open by 2026.

The Labor Government has invested $5.6 billion in improving, upgrading and building schools to ensure that every community can access a great local school where students can achieve their best.
