EDUCATION Minister Peter Collier visited Alkimos Primary School on its third day of operation.

Mr Collier officially opened the $14.03 million school on February 3 as about 220 students from kindergarten to Year 6 settled into their classrooms.

He said although Alkimos was a new suburb, there was already a strong sense of community.

“Parents played a significant role in choosing the name of the school, designing the logo, mottos and uniforms, and deciding on the type of specialist programs the school should run,” he said.
