We built a new primary school in Clyde North. Grayling Primary School was originally known by the interim name of Clyde North East Primary School while it was being planned and built.
The school will help ease enrolment pressures at surrounding schools and meet future demand from a growing population.
The school includes learning spaces, a performing arts and physical education building, and administration areas. Further information on the school can be found on its official Facebook page.
We are pleased to announce that Luke Abdallah has been appointed as the first principal of Grayling Primary School.
This appointment follows a thorough Department of Education expression of interest process.
We are now planning a ‘Meet the Principal’ event in your area.
We held information events in September and October 2019.Transition/Orientation DaysTo ensure all of our students had the opportunity to meet their teachers and see what their new school is all about, we held two orientation days on Monday 2 December and Monday 9 December.
Grayling Primary School is offering enrolments for P-6 in 2020.
Grayling Primary School was originally known by the interim name of Clyde North East Primary School while it was being planned and built.
The new name is a tribute to the Australian Grayling (Prototroctes Maraena), a nationally threatened fish species known to occur locally in the Cardinia Creek that’s close to the school.
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 Nationsindigenous languages. The names were also chosen to help reflect each school’s unique identity, inspire local pride and makes them easily locatable.
Manna Gum Family and Community Centre (previously known as Kilora Family & Community Centre) will be located adjacent to Grayling Primary School and is scheduled to open in 2020. The centre will provide room for kinder, maternal and child health services and hireable spaces.
The kinder will be run by the City of Casey Council. 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. For more information visit the City of Casey website.
