WORKS at Willowbank Primary School will commence as a builder has been allocated to begin the project, ensuring Gisborne families have a new school to look forward to in 2022.
Member for Macedon Mary-Anne Thomas has welcomed the appointment of ADCO Group Pty Ltd to build Willowbank Primary as part of the State Government’s commitment to opening 100 new schools by 2026.
Students and staff at the new primary school will have access to new facilities, including two learning neighbourhood buildings, a performing arts and physical education building, and administration and resource intensive learning building, multipurpose hardcourts, playgrounds, and a sports field.
Works are expected to begin early this year and be completed by term one 2022.
“The appointment of ADCO Group means we are one step closer to delivering on our promise to open Willowbank Primary in Term 1, 2022,” Ms Thomas said.
“The establishment of Willowbank Primary School means that every child in Gisborne will have the opportunity to attend school close to home.”
Every new school built in the state from 2021 will have a kindergarten on-site or next door to reduce the burden on parents and carers.
