We built a new primary school in Mount Duneed.
Mirripoa Primary School was originally known by the interim name of Armstrong Creek West Primary School while it was being planned and built.
The school will help ease enrolment pressures for surrounding schools as well as meeting the needs of a growing population.
For details on the school naming consultation, see the School Name drop down box below.Further information on the school can be found on its official Facebook page.

In August 2019, the name of the Armstrong Creek West (interim name) Primary School was announced as Baanip Primary School, however subsequent community feedback found the name for the new primary school should convey a sense of place and the local environment.
Mirripoa Primary School was chosen as the new school name in October following consultation with the local Wadawurrung community and the interim school council.
Mirripoa means sunny plains and reflects that the school and community are situated on a volcanic plain with golden grass.
The Department of Education and Training worked with the traditional owners and interim school council on alternative Indigenous names that better reflected the area's surroundings.
During planning and construction the school was known by the interim name of Armstrong Creek West Primary School.
This school, designed by Architectus and K2LD as part of the Growth Areas Schools Project, was a winner of the 'Minister's Award for Excellence' in the 2019 Victorian School Design Awards.
