The Consortium comprises ABN AMRO as sponsor, Abigroup as builder, United Group Services as facilities manager and architects Hayball and Gray Puksand.

The schools opened for the 2010 school year were Casey Central Secondary College, Cranbourne North East Primary School, Derrimut Primary School, Point Cook North P-9 School and Taylors Hill Primary School.

The schools opened for the 2011 school year were Craigieburn West Primary School, Cranbourne East P-12 School, Kororoit Creek Primary School, Lyndhurst Primary School, Mernda Central Primary School and Truganina South Primary School.

In addition, the new schools will also be a part of the community with the Government joining with the YMCA to build community hubs with long day care at six of the schools and an aquatic centre with 25 metre pool at Kororoit Creek Primary School.

All education and school curriculum services will continue to be publicly delivered.
