Today Taylor celebrated another big milestone with construction commencing on the Primary school site.

Minister for Housing and Suburban Development and Education and Early Childhood Development Yvette Berry, and Suburban Land Agency’s CEO John Dietz was joined by MLA’s Suzanne Orr and Michael Pettersson at the official sod turning of the school site in Taylor. Construction will commence with the school set to open in 2019.

The school in Taylor will be a preschool to year 6 school catering for students from Taylor, Moncrieff and Jacka. This new modern school facility will cater for 88 preschool and 600 primary school students when it opens for Term 1 2019, providing capacity for quality public education in the North Gungahlin region.

The school will be the first community facility provided in Taylor, including two playing fields, and the wider community will be able to hire the school hall, oval and meeting rooms for a range of activities and gatherings.

The new school will also include a resource centre, canteen, out of hours school care facilities, and great outdoor learning and play areas. Importantly, the school will also have specific facilities for music, and curriculum enrichment programs such as Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM).
