We built a new primary school in Werribee.
Riverwalk Primary School was originally known by the interim name of Wyndham South (Riverwalk) Primary School while it was being planned and built.
The school will help ease enrolment pressures for surrounding schools, and meet demand from a growing population.
The school will include a performing arts and physical education building, and administration areas. Further information on the school can be found at its official Facebook page.
Riverwalk Primary School
is a supported inclusion school. This means the school has been designed
to support a higher number of students with a disability than a typical
mainstream school. Included across the school are facilities that provide
additional support, so that all students have access to the same learning and
We are pleased to announce that Paris Spencer has been appointed as the first principal of Riverwalk Primary School.
This appointment follows a thorough Department of Education expression of interest process.
We held information events in September and October 2019.
Transition/Orientation DaysTo ensure all of our future students had the opportunity to meet their teachers and see what the school is all about, we held orientation days in December and January.
Riverwalk Primary School is 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.
The school is located in the 'Riverwalk Estate'. Its new name reflects this location, and pays tribute to the nearby Werribee River.
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.
We are building a
kinder on site that is scheduled to open in 2021. 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.
