About the project

We built a new primary school in the City of Whittlesea. It opened in 2023, helping the growing local population get great education close to home.

The school will have space for 525 local students and is open for enrolments for students in Prep to Grade 6.

David Williams has been appointed as the new principal of this school.


In the 2021–22 State Budget, this school shared in the $491.565 million for new schools construction.

Funding type
New School
  • Donnybrook Primary School was chosen as the new school name following community consultation. The school is named after the suburb it is located in.

    We used Hayes Hill Primary School as an interim name while the school was being built and established.

  • David Williams has been appointed as the new principal of this school.

    Dave has taught across all levels of primary school, and was most recently the principal at Lalor North Primary School. He is passionate about the teaching of literacy and numeracy and loves seeing students build their confidence and self-belief by experiencing genuine challenges and successes. Dave looks forward to getting to know the Donnybrook Primary School community and developing partnerships that will help all students learn, grow and thrive.

  • The school includes:

    • 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 with 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 hardcourts
    • a sports field.
  • We're building Hayes Hill School Kindergarten (interim name) 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.

    The kindergarten will open Term 1 2024.

  • We held an information session on Tuesday 11 October 2022.
