A new Catholic primary school will be coming to Stockland Mt. Atkinson following the purchase of 3.1 hectares of land by Melbourne Archdiocese Catholic Schools (MACS).

The Catholic primary school will be located on the corner of Sentinel Parade and Clara Avenue in Truganina. It is the second of three schools which have been proposed for the community. Earlier this year, the Victorian School Board Authority purchased 3.5 hectares of land for a future primary school within the Mt. Atkinson community.

Mt. Atkinson is located around 25 kilometres west of Melbourne’s CBD and is currently home to approximately 900 families, with around 4,400 families expected to live there upon completion.

Stockland Senior Development Manager Aaron Fisher said the new school will help cater to the needs of the growing community.

“It’s important that families have options when it comes to their children’s education, and this new school will provide additional choice in a convenient and central location,” said Mr Fisher.

“We look forward to welcoming the second of three planned schools to Mt. Atkinson as we continue expanding the community for current and future residents.”

MACS said they are looking forward to establishing a new school within this growing community and increasing their presence in the western corridor.

The school will be constructed by MACS and is scheduled to open in 2026.
