About the project

We built a new primary school in Mickleham. It opened in 2024, helping the growing local population get a great education close to home. The school is open for enrolments from Prep to Grade 6.

Maree Moyle was appointed as the first principal of the new school.

The school was known by its interim name, Merrifield South Primary School, during planning and design. Yubup Primary School was chosen as this new school’s name following a 2-week community consultation. Yubup (pronounced you-boup) is a Woi-wurrung word of the Wurundjeri people meaning parakeet.


The school has the following facilities:

  • an administration and library building
  • 2 learning neighbourhoods
  • a community hub with indoor multi-use court, canteen and arts/music spaces
  • hard courts
  • a sports field
  • a carpark.

Students have great modern learning areas with air conditioning and heating. Outside, they have shade sails for sun protection. We have designed the school to be environmentally sustainable and easy to manage.

We have planned for future growth of this school. Those plans include an additional learning neighbourhood and more learning resource spaces.

You can learn more about the school on their website.


In the 2022–23 State Budget, the school shared in $527.233 million allocated for new schools. In 2023–24, the school was allocated an additional share in $180.295 million.
