About the project
We built a new primary school in Truganina. It opened in 2021 and helps the growing local population get great education close to home.
Natalie Nelson was appointed as the first principal. Enrolments are now open for Prep to Year 6.
Your new school includes the following facilities:
- 2 learning neighbourhoods
- administration building
- outdoor play courts
- performing arts and physical education building
- sports field.
Garrang Wilam Primary School (pronounced ga-rung wil-em) was originally known by the interim name of Truganina South East Primary School while it was being planned and built.
Garrang Wilam 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.
Garrang Wilam is from the Woi-wurrung language, as spoken by the Wurundjeri people, and means ‘eucalyptus home’.
We consulted with local communities for 3 weeks from Wednesday 24 June to Wednesday 15 July 2020. Thank you for your input.
In the 2019–20 State Budget, the school shared in $624.8 million allocated for new schools.
