PREPared for school
By Jessica Howard
Lunchboxes were packed and shoes were tied last week as the region’s newest
preps set off on their first day of school. Over 550 students have enrolled into one
of Moorabool’s 17 primary schools, 20 less than the year before.
Balliang East Primary School welcomed 12 new preps, bringing the school’s
total to 48 students – the largest number in the school’s 104-year history.
The school is also one of three primary schools in the district to have one or
more set of twins. Principal, Caryn Fox said it was great to see that the school
was attracting more people.
“It shows that people are willing to bring their kids to a fantastic
rural school with a brilliant learning environment,” she said.
“I think we owe the influx of students to our 2016
program ‘Be PREPared’, which was a 10-week
transition program that took families on tours
of the school.
“Following from that, we’ve seen over 40-students
on census day, which is the first time in history.
I hope that this year the students will enjoy
|hanging out with the extra kids and that we
can continue to grow into the future”.
Bacchus Marsh Grammar welcomed the most
amount of students in the region, with 155 preps
enrolled for 2017.
Bacchus Marsh Primary School was close
behind with 132 new preps and Darley
Primary School with 87.
Schools with one or more set of
twins include Bacchus Marsh,
Balliang East and St Bernard’s
Primary Schools.

Western Water’s Managing Director, Neil Brennan said
planning for the future was critical, with Western Water’s
customer base expected to double in the next 20 years.
“We need to map out how we will continue to provide
quality services in the face of population growth and climate
change,” he said.
“It’s important that we get feedback and suggestions from
our customers about what’s important to them”.
A new website recently launched by Western Water will allow
residents to find out more about water quality and prices,
while allowing them to submit their views or suggestions.
“We have already surveyed 900 customers, who told us
that their top priority for water was planning to meet the
