School Is Underway

Construction has started on Docklands’ primary school and it is expected to open in 2021.

Builder Monaco Hickey has started piling on site to support the foundations of the school building.

An Education Department spokesperson told Docklands News: “Docklands Primary School will cater for up to 525 students, and will include a library and indoor gym, as well as art and music areas.”

“The school will help to alleviate enrolment pressures for surrounding schools and help meet demand of a growing inner-Melbourne population.”

Last year’s State Budget allocated $18.8 million to the school build. It is expected that more funds will be allocated in this year’s budget.
