New Mambourin campus

New Mambourin campus

Our community is growing and we’re growing with it!

Due to strong and sustained demand for places at all year levels, Good News Lutheran College is thrilled to announce that we are opening a second campus in Mambourin.

The new campus will enable more students from Melbourne’s fast-growing west to experience a Good News education, grounded in faith, purpose and our values of grace, integrity, courage and respect.

This is the start of an exciting journey for Good News Lutheran College and the wider Wyndham Vale community.

Accepting Mambourin. Prep and Year 1 students in 2023

Good News Lutheran College Mambourin is commencing in 2023 with a limited number of Prep and Year 1 classes.

In 2023 and 2024, students enrolled at Good News Lutheran College Mambourin will undertake classes at the Good News Lutheran College Tarneit campus while our new campus is being constructed.

Classes on site at the new campus will commence in 2025, for students from Prep – Year 6.


Phased enrolments for the new campus

Our Mambourin campus will introduce year level classes on a phased basis. This strategy is based on projected demand for student places in the region, as well as our own waiting lists.
