COURTENAY GARDENS PRIMARY SCHOOL 

Address:   Rosebank Drive, Cranbourne North

Phone:   5995 7139

Back in 1995 Courtenay Gardens opened with beautiful buildings, chairs and tables and a little office equipment. The school was indeed fortunate to inherit an entire library collection from the closed school of Mimosa P.S. in Glen Waverley. In the intervening time frame we have built upon these basic resources and used forward planning so that now we are extremely well equipped and more than capable of addressing the needs of all of our students.

Highlights in the resource area include the building projects of a computer room, 6 new classrooms, open space and storage areas; an extension to the staffroom and assistant principal’s office; 5 large shade areas; 5 adventure playgrounds and a fitness track. In 2002 Courtenay Gardens was awarded an Achievement Award for their grounds and gardens by the State Schools Garden Awards. All of these major projects have come about through major injections of funds and the sheer hard work of the local community.

Over the past five years we have again added to our buildings with a television studio, a performing arts centre, an administration upgrade and the building of a full sized gymnasium and new science room. For Loretta each of these resources has added much to the education of all of our children. Loretta is constantly striving to have Courtenay Gardens at the forefront of innovation and excellence and has tirelessly promoted the school within the local community and wider educational community.
