Permanent Modular School Buildings Program
About the project
The school was significantly damaged by an electrical fault fire in January 2020. The main building, along with the library and the amenities building was destroyed.
We provided relocatable buildings so students, who were temporarily relocated to Heyfield Primary School, could return to Cowwarr. Support services, including counselling, have been made available to staff and students.
The Victorian Government committed to rebuilding the school. We consulted the community through an online survey from Tuesday 4 until Wednesday 25 March 2020. We gave feedback from the survey to the architects so they could begin work on designing the rebuild.
After close consultation with the principal and school, we released designs for the rebuild in December 2020. The new school includes office and administration spaces, a staff centre, gallery, practical activities area and 2 classroom spaces.
