About the project

We’re building a new primary school in Truganina. It will open day one of Term 1 in 2024 and help the growing local population get a great education close to home. It will be able to enrol up to 650 students, when the school is complete.

We're building Warreen Primary School Kindergarten at the school. Having the kindergarten and school together may help local children make a smooth transition into primary school and can also make drop-off time simpler for some families. Bemin Secondary College’s junior campus will also be located on the same site.

Funding type
New School
  • Warreen Primary School was chosen as this new school’s name following a two-week community consultation. Warreen (pronounced wah-reen) is a Bunurong word meaning wombat.

    We used Truganina North Primary School as an interim name while the school was being planned and designed.

  • Joanna Stanford was appointed principal of this new school.

    Joanna is an innovative and passionate educational leader with 20 years of experience working in Melbourne's west. She spent 12 years at Derrimut Primary School, including 6 as principal. Joanna believes that all learners can experience success in the right environment. She is looking forward to building a community of learners with the families and young people at Warreen Primary School.

  • When the school opens in Term 1, 2024, it will include:

    • an administration and library building
    • 3 learning neighbourhoods
    • a community hub
    • a car park
    • hard courts
    • outdoor play spaces
    • a sports field.

    Students will have great modern learning areas with air conditioning and heating. We have designed the school to be environmentally sustainable and easy to manage.

  • Across late 2021 and during early–mid 2022, we consulted with local Traditional Owners, represented by the Bunurong Land Council Aboriginal Corporation to endorse the design of this new school.

    We sought feedback and advice on:

    • local Indigenous plantings
    • cultural stories and histories
    • translations of Indigenous words
    • design elements that could enhance cultural education and understanding.
