We built a new primary school.
Lucas Primary School will help ease enrolment pressures at surrounding schools and meet future demand from a growing population.
The new school includes state of the art general and specialist teaching spaces, administration areas and a performing arts and physical education building.Further information on the school can be found at its official Facebook page.
We are pleased to announce that Sue Sawyer has been appointed as the first principal of Lucas Primary School.
This appointment follows a thorough Department of Education expression of interest process.
We held information events in September 2019. Transition/Orientation DaysTo ensure all of our future Years 1-6 students and their parents had the opportunity to meet their teachers and see what their new school is all about, we held an orientation day on Wednesday 4 December.
Lucas Primary School will be offering enrolments for P-6 in 2020.
State-wide school zone maps are available at findmyschool.vic.gov.au .
Policies on enrolment, placement, and admission are available on the Department of Education and Training website.
Lucas Primary School is named after the Ballarat 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.
This project, designed by Architectus with K2LD and DesignInc, was the winner of ‘Best Primary School Project’ in the 2020 Victorian School Design Awards.
