A Learning City is an aspiration whereby life-long learning is expected and valued by the whole community; where learning can be seen and felt to flourish; opportunities and choices abound, and curiosity and discovery are championed.
Greater Springfield, by design, has attracted young, upwardly mobile, passionate and family-oriented citizens. Growth will continue at above the average rates experienced elsewhere, as the liveability and access to world-class infrastructure and educational institutions continues to attract.
Our master plan has seen education in Greater Springfield grow to 11 schools, a university, a TAFE and a variety of other learning institutions. Now there are close to 15,000 students learning in Greater Springfield in one form or another and these students live and go to school within 5-10 minutes of each other
The eleven principals of Greater Springfield’s schools have come together and formalised the Greater Springfield Learning Coalition which will nurture a seamless Learning City around four key areas of mutual interest.
– Sustainability for growth
– Pursuit of learning excellence
– Economy and jobs
– Data sharing
The Learning Coalition will host the first Greater Springfield Festival of Learning on 21 – 26 October 2019, which will encompass a wide range of connected events and activities across the emerging city that showcase and celebrate learning.
