Enrolments Now Open for Deanside Primary School!
Progress on the brand new Deanside Primary School has been moving apace, with the school on track to open in time for term 1, 2022! Carry on reading for all the latest updates on our community’s new school.
Creating new school spirit
As you might have guessed, our school now has an official name! Formerly Grasslands (Deanside) Primary School (interim name), it’s now known as Deanside Primary School – much less of a mouthful!
To go with the new moniker, the school has also adopted a logo design. The logo is designed to resemble rocks and stones, acknowledging the proud history of the local farmland, where farmers constructed fences from rocks – still seen in the area to this day. The white line in the logo represents the path of Kororoit Creek, which flows close to the school. All the shapes overlap to create a bold and dynamic logo that celebrates a unified school community coming together, creating a rock solid foundation for learning. And now that a logo and name has been decided, uniforms will be next – so stay tuned for news on that!
The first Deanside Primary principal
Every school needs a leader, and Deanside Primary’s very first will be long time local Stuart Telford! Mr Telford has spent most of his career in education within the City of Melton, as well as recent leadership roles in the Macedon Ranges and Brimbank networks. With a wealth of knowledge, skills and expertise at his disposal, Mr Telford will no doubt hit the ground running, helping to develop a high-performing primary school with a clear focus on the academic, social and emotional needs of young people.
