STUDENTS and teachers at Marong Primary School can look forward to a new suite of buildings after receiving funding of $6.4 million from the state government.
Principal Russell Jeffrey said enrolments have doubled in the past three years, and could double again by 2025.
The school has about 150 students, and is expecting 200-300 in the next five years.
Mr Jeffrey said the school was already using a few portable buildings to accommodate students.
He said the school planned to extend the main learning building, put in three new learning spaces, a staff room, a multi-purpose room and upgrade its heritage listed building.
It also plans to do significant landscaping and grounds development, creating an extra oval and playing surfaces.
"The anticipated growth out here is quite large, so this'll enable us to cater for our current needs, but also put us in a really strong position to cater for the future," Mr Jeffrey said.
"The new spaces are all designed for 21st century learning. They'll be well fitted with the latest ICT technology, we'll have flexible classrooms that'll enable us to cater for the differentiated needs of our students."
Mr Jeffrey said there had been a significant growth in the junior end of the school. He said prep has had an average intake between 24 and 30 over the past few years.
Personally, Mr Jeffrey was most looking forward to the multipurpose room. He said this would allow the school to accommodate all children and parents at special assemblies, and to run specialist programs.
The school hopes to start works before the end of the year.
