How you had YourSay

Thank you to everyone who provided feedback on the school name, uniform, and logo for the new public school in Throsby. A summary of feedback provided is in the What We Heard Report on this page.

As an important facility for the Throsby community, we asked for the views of local families, teachers, parents of school children, community organisations and the broader Canberra community.

We received your feedback, from 7 October to 15 October 2021, through online voting which helped us finalise the different aspects of the school’s visual brand.

You voted for:

School name: Throsby School

School uniform: Eucalyptus leaf concept

What we are looked at

We are working hard to ensure that every child has access to great, accessible and sustainable facilities and school infrastructure that support high-quality education to meet the needs of our growing city.

A new Preschool to Year 6 school is being built in the northern suburb of Throsby. The school will cater to students in Throsby and its surrounding suburbs and offer a state-of-the-art education facility focused on providing a great education in both indoor and outdoor learning areas.

The school will open for the 2022 school year.

We asked the community to tell us what their preferred option is for the name and the uniform for the new school.
