New School, New Name


The State government has begun community consultation on the proposed names for three new schools set to open in 2022, including one on the Eyre Peninsula.

The new Whyalla secondary school is due to open in the coming years with its new name now in discussion.

Proposed names so far include:

  • Whyalla Secondary College
  • Whyalla Secondary School
  • Spencer Gulf College

The proposed names were developed by advisory committees made up of the school’s principal, neighbouring school staff and local parents.

Education Minister John Gardner is encouraging locals to jump online and complete the short survey and have their say.

Consultation on the new school name will open be until October 2nd with the survey found online.
