The Lego masterpiece will be created by the Legoland Discovery Centre’s Master Model Builder David Holder.
It will go on display at a Miniland Exhibition at Legoland for a year, before being given to Golden Square Primary School.
Mr Holder visited the school in Term Three to present students with a winning plaque of the school's logo, made entirely with Lego.
Grade Three and Four teacher at Golden Square Primary Leigh Westcott said that the students were all excited to have their work chosen.
As a teacher he was proud to see Golden Square reflected in the students’ words.
“I could see just reading through their words with regards to why the school is so special to them... that filled me with a lot of pride as a teacher,” Mr Westcott said.
Several students and teachers will also travel to Melbourne in a few weeks time to help Mr Holder put the finishing touches on the model Golden Square, before taking part in some Lego classes.
