"Today I am able to confirm that the diocese has purchased the land.

"We will now commence the necessary planning and development activities required by the state and local government for approval of a Catholic secondary school on the site

"This is an exciting time for us.

"We must however be clear that there is still a process of government endorsement and capital planning approval to take place before this site can be developed as a secondary school.

"The Catholic Education Office will lead the work that is required to gain these approvals.

"Consultation with the Mary MacKillop Catholic School community and other local community members will be a key part of this activity."

Mary MacKillop Catholic School celebrated its 10th anniversary this year and has a current enrolment of 432 students.

The primary school announced recently it will increase its intake of year one and two students.
