About the project
We built a new primary school in Clyde. It opened in 2022 and helps the growing local population get great education close to home. The school is open for enrolments from Prep to Grade 6.
Jodie Bray was appointed as the first principal of the school.
The school was previously known by its interim name, Clyde North Station Primary School, during the planning phase. We consulted with the community on Clyde Creek Primary School's name from 11 June to 25 June 2021. The school is named after Clyde Creek, which is close to the school site.
The school has the following facilities:
- an administration and resource intensive learning building
- 2 learning neighbourhood buildings
- a Performing Arts and Physical Education (PAPE) building, including an indoor multi-court
- 2 hardcourts
- sports field
- bike shelter
In 2018, we consulted with local communities gaining new schools. We captured the local area's broad aspirations and used this feedback in our concept designs.
A second round of engagement was held in January and February 2020. We invited locals to share their ideas, local knowledge and the things that mattered most about how their school would look, feel and function.
The Clyde Creek Primary School community told us:
- that it loves the local wetlands and wanted this reflected in the design of their school
- families wanted an outdoor space with enough playground area for a growing population
- Clyde North Station families gave priority to a broad array of sports and activities.
Our consultation received strong and consistent feedback on many of their design needs and goals. Our architects used the feedback to help shape the school's interior and its landscape design.
The centre provides:
- early education
- maternal child health and family services
- supported playgroups
- occasional care
- community meeting spaces
In the 2018–19 State Budget, $271.7 million was allocated to schools across the state for land acquisition. This includes funding for Clyde Creek Primary School.
In 2020, the school shared in $438.6 million of funding for new schools.
