ABOUT THE PROJECT
John Henry Primary School serves the rapidly growing residential areas in the suburb of Pakenham.
The school has been built to accommodate up to 400 students, and was delivered by the Learning Communities Victoria (LCV) consortium.
The school opened for students, Prep to Year 6 in Term 1, 2017.
The school was designed with the local community in mind and is a gathering place for local families and residents to enjoy community, arts, sports and recreation programs.
