The Northern Territory Government fast-tracked construction of the new government school to cater for enrolment demand in Palmerston, the Territory’s fastest growing region.
When fully operational, the new school will have capacity for 430 primary students and 88 preschoolers.
Construction on Stage Two of Zuccoli Primary school in Palmerston is currently underway with Stage One completed December 2019 and open to students from Term 1, 2020.
The new school provides quality, contemporary learning spaces that ensure young children are engaged and are receiving the best possible start towards a bright future.
