About the project

We upgraded facilities at the school by constructing a teaching block with 12 classrooms and staff facilities as well as associated landscaped sensory play areas and a staff car park.

This project targeted facilities that needed it most, ensuring that students learn in an environment designed for delivering modern education.

The school was previously known as Western Autistic School – Niddrie Campus. Niddrie Autistic School was chosen as the school name following community consultation and discussions with Geographic Names Victoria, taking into account factors including public interest, relevance to the local area, and local Indigenous languages. We consulted with the community on the school's name from 11 June to 25 June 2021. The school is named after the suburb it is located in.


In the 2018–19 State Budget $7.3 million was allocated to the school.
