A vibrant, innovative and imaginative education – that’s the vision for a brand new secondary school in the heart of Subiaco to open in 2020.
Bob Hawke College is under construction on Kitchener Park. It will initially enrol 250 Year 7 students and grow to an expected 1500 students from Years 7 to 12 by 2025, with a capacity for up to 2000 students in the future.
The college will be a central hub for the Subiaco community. With shared facilities, such as Subiaco Oval and the college’s playing courts and gymnasium, it will play an integral role in creating opportunities to unite the community. Students will benefit from strong connections fostered with local business and industry, universities and training providers.
With a population of young people full of aspirations, ideas and energy, the college will add to the vibrancy of Subiaco.
