Ridge Primary School is named after the suburb where it is located.
The Department of Education chose this name after consulting with local communities on the names for all schools opening in 2020. To reach a final decision, the Department considered this community feedback along with the guiding principles for naming a new school.
Possible names for all the new schools were initially shortlisted by school advisory groups, who considered factors such as public interest, relevance to the local area, and local First Nations languages. The names were also chosen to help reflect each school's unique identity, inspire local pride and make them easily locatable.
Ridge Primary School will have an integrated family and community centre at the same site, scheduled to open in 2020. The centre will provide room for kinder, maternal and child health services and hireable spaces.
The kinder will open term one of 2020 and be run by the City of Casey Council. It will
help local children make a smooth transition from pre-school and
reduce the number of drop-offs for some parents with kinder and school-aged
children. For more information visit the City of Casey website.
