New schools for Gungahlin
As the 2016 school year gets underway in Canberra, the growing Gungahlin community can look forward to getting two new schools in the coming years.
The new north Gungahlin suburb of Taylor will be home to a new primary school to be built by 2019. This new school will meet the educational needs of students in the suburbs of Moncrieff, Jacka and Taylor. When fully established it will cater for around 80 preschoolers and approximately 450 primary schoolers from kindergarten to year 6.
New high school facilities will also be constructed. An upcoming study will look into the timing and location of this school.
