About the Development

Building of Officer Secondary College was completed over 2 stages and 2 levels. A planning committee worked with architects Clarke Hopkins Clarke over 2 years, to ensure that the new school was built to serve its community to the highest standard. Building of Stage 1 commenced in 2013 and was finished in December 2014. Stage 2 was completed in December 2015.49 Kilometres from Melbourne, and on a greenfield site, the architects drew on 3 core elements-historical and environmental influences,21st century learning and rapid growth prediction. Planning and design also reflects its proximity to the Cardinia Council offices to the north, Gum Scrub Creek wetlands to the east and the Officer Specialist School to the south.
