About the project
We rebuilt Puckapunyal Primary School after it was significantly damaged by a fire in December 2020.
Up to 90% of the main building was destroyed by the fire, and there was significant smoke and water damage to the remainder.
The Building the Education Revolution (BER) building, play equipment, sheds, sand pits, oval and garden areas were unaffected by the fire. Students were temporarily relocated to Seymour College for the remainder of the 2020 school year. Relocatable buildings were placed on the school site at the beginning of Term 1, allowing students to return to Puckapunyal for the 2021 school year.
In the 2020 Minor Capital Works Fund, the school was allocated $207,125 to resurface the outdoor sports court area with synthetic turf. This was completed with the school rebuild.
