About the project

We built a new primary school in Aintree. It opened in 2021 and helps the growing local population get great education close to home.

Simon Cornock was appointed as the first principal. Enrolments are now open for Prep to Year 6.

Your new school includes the following facilities:

  • 2 learning neighbourhoods
  • administration building
  • outdoor play courts
  • performing arts and physical education building
  • sports field.

Timbertop Children’s & Community Centre is located next to the school. This will help local children make a smooth transition from preschool and reduce the number of drop-offs for some parents with kinder and school-aged children.

Further information on the school can be found on its official Facebook page.

School name

The school was originally known by the interim name of Rockbank North Primary School while it was being planned and built. Aintree Primary School was chosen as the school name following community consultation and discussions with Geographic Names Victoria, with consideration given to factors including public interest, relevance to the local area, and the consideration of local Indigenous languages.

The school is named after the suburb it is located in. This is the first new primary school to be built in Aintree.

We consulted with local communities for 3 weeks from Wednesday 24 June to Wednesday 15 July 2020. Thank you for your input.

Funding

In the 2018–19 State Budget, $271.7 million was allocated to schools across the state for land acquisition. This included funding for a proposed primary school in Aintree.

In the 2019–20 State Budget, the school shared in $624.8 million allocated for new schools.
