The Victorian Government made a commitment to deliver 100 new schools between 2019 and 2026. This includes the new Docklands Primary School which finished construction in October 2020. The school opened in 2021 and will help alleviate enrolment pressures for surrounding schools and meet demand from a growing inner-Melbourne population.
Adam Bright was appointed
as the first principal. Enrolments are now open for Prep to Year 6.
The three-storey school includes a library, music and arts rooms, administration areas, outdoor learning terraces and a competition-grade indoor sports court for netball and basketball.
Further information on the school, including enrolment, can be found on its official Facebook page.
Enrolments are now open for Prep to Year 6.

We built a kindergarten at Docklands Primary School.
It is on the second level of the school building and includes two kindergarten rooms, administration areas and an outdoor learning terrace.
Having the kindergarten and school together 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.
