About the project
We built a new primary school in Wollert. It opened in 2021 and helps the growing local population get great education close to home.
Ann Turner-Calleri was appointed as the first principal. Enrolments are now open for Prep to Year 6.
Your new school includes:
- 2 learning neighbourhoods
- an arts, science and food technology building
- an administration building
- outdoor play courts
- a performing arts and physical education building
- a sports field.
We supported the build of a next to the school. This may help local children make a smooth transition from preschool and reduce the number of drop-offs for some parents with kinder and school-aged children.
Edgars Creek Primary School was chosen as the school name following community consultation and discussions with Geographic Names Victoria, with consideration given to factors including public interest, relevance to the local area, and the consideration of local Indigenous languages.
We consulted with local communities for 3 weeks from Wednesday 24 June to Wednesday 15 July 2020. Thank you for your input.
Funding was provided in the 2017–18 State Budget to buy land in this area for a new school.
In the 2019–20 State Budget, the school shared in $624.8 million allocated for new schools.
