About the project

We built a new primary school in Wollert West. It opened in 2023, helping the growing local population get great education close to home. The school is open for enrolments from Prep to Grade 6.

Alisha Campbell was appointed as the first principal of the school.

The school was previously known by its interim name, Wollert West Primary School, during the planning phase. We consulted with the community on school's name from 20 June 2022 to 8 July 2022.

Barrawang (pronounced barra-wang) is a Woi-wurrung word of the Wurundjeri people meaning magpie.

Facilities

Facilities include the following:

  • an administration building with a library, staff offices and amenities. As well as specialist teaching areas for science and food technology
  • 2 learning neighbourhood buildings. These have general purpose classrooms, and flexible and collaborative teaching spaces
  • a community hub building with a competition-grade gymnasium, canteen, music and drama space
  • 2 outdoor hard courts
  • a sports field.

Supported inclusion school

This school is a supported inclusion school. This school has specialised facilities and capabilities designed to accommodate students with disabilities.

Kindergarten

We have built Barrawang Primary School Kindergarten, a two-room kindergarten at the school. It can offer up to 66 much-needed kindergarten places for local families.
