The new primary school in the suburb of Taylor in north Gungahlin will be a preschool to year 6 school catering for students from Taylor, Moncrieff and future stages of Jacka, the first suburbs being developed as part of the North Gungahlin development.
This new modern school facility will cater for 44 preschool and 600 primary school students when it opens for Term 1 2019, providing capacity for quality public education in this high-growth region. The planning will also allow for the accommodation of an additional 22 preschool students and 150 primary school students, and potentially a year 7-10 expansion if required to cater for future growth.
The school will be the first community facility provided in Taylor, including two playing fields, and the wider community will be able to hire the school hall, oval and meeting rooms for a range of activities and gatherings.
The new school will also include a resource centre, canteen, out of hours school care facilities, and great outdoor learning and play areas. Importantly, the school will also have specific facilities for music, and curriculum enrichment programs such as Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) to ensure we are equipping students for the best possible future. The new school will welcome its first students on the first day of the 2019 school year.
The Priority Enrolment Area for the new school includes the suburbs of Moncrieff, Taylor and Casey, which is a shared PEA zone for Gold Creek School. In the meantime, families who move into the suburbs of Moncrieff and Taylor are welcome to enrol their children at Amaroo School until the new P-6 school opens at the start of 2019.
