About the project
We built a new primary school in Cranbourne West. 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.
Elizabeth Davey was appointed as the first principal of the school.
The school was previously known by its interim name, Camms Road Primary School, during the planning phase. We consulted with the community on Quarters Primary School's name from 20 June 2022 and 8 July 2022. The school is named after ‘the Quarters’, used by students to identify the place they come from.
The school has the following facilities:
- an administration building with a library, staff offices and amenities, as well as specialist teaching areas for science and food technology
- 3 learning neighbourhood buildings with general purpose classrooms, and flexible and collaborative teaching spaces
- a community hub building with a competition-grade gymnasium, canteen, music and drama space
- 2 outdoor hard courts
- a sports field.
This building will initially open for community and family services only. It will switch to being a kindergarten as the local community grows and demand builds for more early childhood education. The centre will offer up to 66 kindergarten places.
The 2020–21 State Budget allocated more than $147 million to purchase land for 11 new schools. This included land for Quarters Primary School.
In the 2021–22 State Budget, this school shared in the $491.565 million for new schools construction.
