About the project
We’re building a new primary school in Mambourin. 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.
The school will open for enrolments for students in Prep to Grade 6.
The new school principal is expected to be appointed by Term 2, 2023.
Across late 2021 and during early–mid 2022, we consulted with local Traditional Owners, represented by the Wadawurrung Traditional Owners 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
We're building 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.
In the 2022–23 State Budget, the school shared in $527.233 million allocated for new schools.
