Early Childhood School

An ACT Public School

School Expansion

The ACT Government is investing $29.5 million for the expansion of our school to become a full preschool to year 6 school by 2022.  The expansion will provide an additional 450 places for students to meet the need for local primary and early childhood services.

The expansion plans include the construction of new permanent school buildings, a new multi-purpose community hall/gymnasium, sports field, hard courts, upgrades to the landscaping and additional carparking. Our school will continue with its existing early childhood offering as well as maintaining our ethos and culture of the existing school.

Designs for the school expansion

The design aims to retain the great features of our early childhood school model and align with the physical elements of the existing school. The designs have been developed using the ACT Education Directorate’s design documentation and output specifications for school facilities.  It aims to best utilise the current site, ensuring adequate external learning environments are maintained, to avoid overshadowing of existing school buildings and to minimise disruption to the school and community through the construction period.

You can email us at

We will keep our school community informed about the expansion works through the school newsletter and updates to this website. A quarterly email will also be sent to friends and neighbours of the school. Please contact us if you would like to be added to this mailing list.



Our Students Have a Voice

Our students are at the centre of everything we do at FECS and we asked some of them what they like about their school. You may like to watch our short video Student Voices. We will continue to involve our students, parents and staff in the planning for our school expansion.
