Resources for teachers
We are inviting all Victorian school students to get involved in this once‑in‑a‑generation opportunity to name the Metro Tunnel's new underground stations.
All students can submit naming suggestions online. If any of their suggestions become a final station name, they will be in the running to win an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of the Metro Tunnel works for their class.
A representative from Melbourne Metro Rail Authority will contact the principal of your school if an entry from one of your students wins.
Suggested classroom activities and supporting resources are available to download below.
If you have internet access in the classroom, invite students to enter their submissions online or set this task as a homework activity, or call us on 1800 551 927 to request a class packs of entry cards and a pre-paid postpack so you can return them to us.
Primary school activity
If your students have used the Station Drawing Activity Worksheet, we’d love to receive them! We will record the information on each worksheet as an entry in the Station Naming Competition.
The pictures will then be de-identified, scanned and could be used on social media and digital screens at Metro Tunnel sites. Call us on 1800 551 927 to request a prepaid postpack and leave your details so we can let you know when your students' pictures are on display.
