The Liverpool Community of Schools (LC2) community engagement project connects the public schools in the Liverpool Health, Education, Research and Innovation Precinct.

This project will also operate within a community engagement framework, which is in the process of being developed. 

At present Liverpool Community of Schools LC2 meets once a term. Members are principals of the LC2 schools.

Directional focus

The LC2 project comes off the back of the August 2017 PWC report Reimagining the Liverpool Health, Education, Research and Innovation Precinct (PDF 10MB). It has 3 directional focus areas:

  1. Providing a linkage between schools to create a P-12 approach to public education in the Liverpool area that aligns with the plans to make Liverpool a health, education, research and innovation precinct.
  2. Create an education pathway for our students that is seamless from Pre-school to Year 12 and beyond.
  3. Capitalise on the partnerships between the Liverpool Community of Schools LC2 and the other areas of health, education, research and innovation having a major position within the precinct partnership.
