Most sadly, we won’t be opening Maxwell primary school in 2018.
The VRQA have let us know that most new schools do not receive registration from their first application, mostly due to poor enrolment numbers or lack of a suitable site, but these are not our issues. If we are registered, it may be late January at the earliest, due to a generous, recent and lucky financial kick-start, and our planning permit and occupancy certificate which are dragging well into late January.
We do not want children and their families to be in wait for Maxwell that, at the 11th hour, may not be registered. So, the board have decided to withdraw our application for this year and ensure Maxwell is PERFECTLY positioned to open with a wonderful celebration and anticipation of excellence at the beginning of 2019.
SoCC is 110% committed to opening our primary school… we will reapply in 2018 to open in 2019. Please keep in touch with us. Hold on tight!
