About the project

We built a new primary school in the City of Wyndham. 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.

Chris Simmons was appointed as the first principal of the school.

The school was previously known by its interim name, Tarneit Missen House Primary School, during the planning phase. We consulted with the community on school's name from 20 June 2022 to 8 July 2022. Nearnung (pronounced nee-a-noong) is a Bunurong word meaning black cockatoo.

Warringa Park School specialist campus is next door. It has places for primary-aged students with intellectual disabilities.


Facilities include the following:

  • an administration building with a library, staff offices and amenities
  • 2 learning neighbourhood buildings. These include general purpose classrooms, and flexible and collaborative teaching spaces
  • a specialist learning neighbourhood building for subjects such as food technology and science
  • a community hub with a competition-grade gymnasium, canteen, music and drama space
  • 2 outdoor hardcourts
  • a sports field.


We partnered with Wyndham City Council to build Bembit Bag-rook Community Centre. The centre provides kindergarten, maternal and child health care and other family services.


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