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 is open for enrolments from Prep to Grade 6.

David Williams was appointed as the first principal of the school.

The school was previously known by its interim name, Hayes Hill Primary School, during the planning phase. We consulted with the community on school's name from 20 June 2022 to 8 July 2022. The school is named after the suburb it is located in.

Facilities

The school has the following facilities:

  • 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.

Kindergarten

We're building Murnong Kindergarten 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. 

Funding

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