About the project

We’re building a new primary school in Kalkallo. It will open day one of Term 1 in 2024 and help the growing local population get a great education close to home.

It will be able to enrol up to 525 students when the first stage of the school is complete. The school will open for enrolments for students in Prep to Grade 6.

The 2024 school zones are available at Link . For enrolment queries, please email

The community will be able to help choose the new school’s name via the Engage VictoriaExternal Link website. Following consultation, the school’s name will be announced in Term 3, 2023.

    In the 2022–23 State Budget, the school shared in $527.233 million allocated for new schools.

    Funding type
    New School
    • Anthony Potesta has been appointed as principal of the new school.

      Anthony is the foundation principal of Lockerbie Central Primary School (interim name). Most recently he was the principal at Meadows Primary School. Anthony is committed to building strong relationships with the school community to improve educational and wellbeing outcomes for all learners.

    • When the school opens in Term 1, 2024, it will include:

      • an administration and library building
      • 2 learning neighbourhoods
      • a community hub with indoor multi-use court, canteen and arts/music spaces
      • hard courts
      • a sports field
      • a carpark.

      Students will have great modern learning areas with air conditioning and heating. Outside, they will have shade sails for sun protection. We have designed the school to be environmentally sustainable and easy to manage.

      We have planned for future growth of this school. Those plans include an additional learning neighbourhood and more learning resource spaces.

    • Across late 2021 and during early–mid 2022, we consulted with local Traditional Owners, represented by the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung Cultural Heritage Aboriginal Corporation to endorse the design of this new school.

      We sought feedback and advice on:

      • local Indigenous plantings
      • cultural stories and histories
      • translations of Indigenous words
      • design elements that could enhance cultural education and understanding
