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.
Honey Stirling was appointed as the first principal of the school.
The school was previously known by its interim name, Holyoake Parade Primary School, during the planning phase. We consulted with the community on school's name from 20 June 2022 to 8 July 2022. Ngarri (pronounced narr-ee) is a Wadawurrung word meaning ‘sheoak’.
Facilities include the following:
- an administration building with a library, staff offices and amenities
- 3 learning neighbourhood buildings. These include general purpose classrooms, and flexible and collaborative teaching spaces
- a specialist learning neighbourhood 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
- a bike shed.
We partnered with Wyndham City Council to build Birnbial Family Centre. The centre provides kindergarten, maternal child health and allied health services.
In the 2021–22 State Budget, this school shared in the $491.565 million for new schools construction.
