In 2018, we consulted with local communities gaining new schools next year in Melbourne's fastest growing outer suburbs – including your new primary school. We captured each local area's broad aspirations and used this feedback in our concept designs.
During January and February 2020, a second round of engagement invited locals to share their ideas, local knowledge and the things that mattered most about how their school would look, feel and function.
The Wollert Primary School community wanted its design to reflect the surrounding natural environment they enjoyed at nearby Edgars Creek and Lehmann's Farm Park. They told us they wanted to see use of natural colours and materials and for the school to be surrounded by native flora. There was also a strong preference for the design to be eco-friendly and sustainable.
Wollert East families said they wanted a school that felt like an extension of home and a place that would connect the community. They hoped their school would be an anchor and a social hub for this growing area.
Our consultation received strong and consistent feedback on many of their design needs and goals. Our architects used your feedback to help shape your school's interior and its landscape design. We have produced a report (PDF Word) that summarises your community's feedback and the shared thoughts of similar communities with schools opening in 2022.
We are building a kinder at Wollert Primary School. This may 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.
