We are building a new primary school to open for term 1, 2020. Grayling Primary School was originally known by the interim name of Clyde North East Primary School while it was being planned and built.
The school will help ease enrolment pressures at surrounding schools and meet future demand from a growing population.
The school will include learning spaces, a performing arts and physical education building, and administration areas. Depending on enrolment numbers, we may also provide relocatable classrooms.

Grayling Primary School was originally known by the interim name of Clyde North East Primary School while it was being planned and built.
The new name is a tribute to the Australian Grayling (Prototroctes Maraena), a nationally threatened fish species known to occur locally in the Cardinia Creek that’s close to the school.
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 Nationsindigenous languages. The names were also chosen to help reflect each school’s unique identity, inspire local pride and makes them easily locatable.
