Building works at the site of the new Burnside Primary School are underway and on time for school gates to open on the first day of Term 1, 2019.
Situated just south of the Burnside Community Centre on Lexington Drive,
the P-6 school will feature two state-of-the-art learning communities, complete with break-out collaboration spaces, creative activity spaces and withdrawal areas, as well as an administration building with library.
Spread over 3.5 hectares, the grounds will include a sporting field, two hard courts and open play areas.
It's expected that enrolment boundaries for the school will be announced by mid year and eligible children will be invited to enrol in Term 3.
