About the project

We built a new primary school.

The school will help ease enrolment pressures at surrounding schools and meet future demand from a growing population.

We are constructing a kinder on the same site as Davis Creek Primary School that is scheduled to open in 2021. This will help local children make a smooth transition from pre-school and reduce the number of drop-offs for some parents with kinder and school-aged children.

Further information on the school can be found at its official Facebook pageExternal Link .

School name

Davis Creek Primary School is named after a seasonal river that flows in the area near this new school.

The Department of Education chose this name after consulting with local communities on the names for all schools opening in 2020. To reach a final decision, the Department considered this community feedback along with the guiding principles for naming a new school.

Possible names for all the new schools were initially shortlisted by school advisory groups, who considered factors such as public interest, relevance to the local area, and local First Nations languages. The names were also chosen to help reflect each school's unique identity, inspire local pride and make them easily locatable.

Funding

The 2015-16 State Budget allocated funding to buy land in this area for a new school. The school received an additional $20.1 million in the 2018-19 State Budget for construction. In the 2018-19 State Budget $3 million was allocated for the early learning facility. In the 2019-20 State Budget, the school shared in $624.8 million allocated for new schools.
