About the project
We built a new primary school in Eynesbury. It opened in 2021 and help the growing local population get great education close to home.
Your new school includes the following facilities:
- 2 learning neighbourhoods
- arts, science and food technology building
- administration building
- outdoor play courts
- performing arts and physical education building
- sports field.
We supported the build of a kinder on the same site as 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.
Phillip Coloca has been appointed as the first principal. Enrolments are now open for Prep to Year 6.
Eynesbury 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.
The school is named after the suburb it is located in. This is the first new primary school to be built in Eynesbury.
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.
