Tick! Primary school location confirmed
July 24th, 2014
Following a State Government decision to select Dunsborough Lakes as a site for a future primary school development, Wallis Property is to provide land for the new facility in the heart of the estate.
A Department of Education spokesperson said: “We have been working with Wallis Property to finalise the location of the future primary school site in Dunsborough Lakes. The proposed site is located at the south end of the estate on the future extension of Dunsborough Lakes Drive, west of the intersection with Prestwick Road.
“The site will be 3.62ha in area and this location offers significant benefits with good road infrastructure and the potential for the sharing of the future district sports facilities on the abutting public open space.”
The decision to select Dunsborough Lakes for a new school is based on population growth and the number of children likely to reach school age in the review period. With total enrolments in Dunsborough Primary School in Old Dunsborough peaking this year at 699, it’s evident that a newschooling option will be required in the near future.
