Work is well underway at Aveley North Primary School ahead of opening the doors for kindergarten and pre-primary students to start the 2018 school year.
Stage 1 of the new school includes an early childhood annexe, playground facilities, an administration block and a carpark and will be completed by the end of this year.
Students from kindergarten to Year 6 will attend from 2019 when the school is completed with five permanent teaching blocks, an administration area, dental therapy centre, undercover area, library and extensive sporting facilities with multi-purpose courts and an oval.
After extensive consultation with the community, Aveley North Primary School has been confirmed as the school name.

Aveley North Primary School is on the corner of Egerton Drive and Strinesdale Boulevard, Aveley.
