Lilydale West Primary School was established in 1972. The school consists of 3 main buildings, together with a free-standing Music Room and sustainability hub.  The school is air conditioned and has well equipped, attractive, library and computer rooms. The grounds include  large adventure playgrounds, a large sports oval, sealed asphalt areas with basketball, netball and bat tennis courts. A new multi-purpose building houses a gym, performance space, art room and canteen.

As you walk beneath our Clock Tower at the main school entrance, you are greeted with displays on the walls and lining the corridor. A small waiting area, with information brochures, forms, current newsletter and other school information is opposite the office where any general enquires can be answered. The principal's office is located next to the school office and the door is always open for a friendly chat or for a conversation you may wish to have about your children's education. our students' work ador

Building A

Building A houses the administration area, staffroom, OSHCare, library, Indonesian Centre and the Carol Watt Learning Centre.  It also includes 10 classrooms.

Building B

Building B is situated at the top of the school grounds and includes 7 classrooms. A covered walkway joins Building B with Building A.  


The Library is located in Building A. It has a fully computerised catalogue and borrowing system. Students use the library for general reading, learning about literature, study and to learn a love of books.  Each class visits the library with their teacher weekly and a library technician maintains and reinforces library skills.


The very large grounds of Lilydale West Primary School are an extension of the learning environment of the classroom, as well as a fun place to play and enjoy recess and lunchtime. They provide plenty of space for children to be physically active under good supervision.

Two large adventure playgrounds are located at different places in the grounds. They have soft fall mulch underneath the play equipment, and are shaded by native trees or shade cloth. The playground near the oval is used by the Year 3-6  children and includes a rock climbing wall.

A train playground and sandpit, both covered by shade-cloth are for the Junior classes.

Here the Foundation children can play without the worry of the bigger and older children.  A natural place space is located between Building A and Building B.  It is made up of large boulders and rocks.  It is a great space for generating creative play and interaction between the children.

An outdoor classroom with fixed seats and tables and covered by shade sails is on the Wilson's Lane boundary of the school. It is well used in the warmer months as an outdoor classroom or a quiet place to sit in the shade and talk or play games at recess. It is large enough to accommodate a class of students.

The Oval has goal posts at either end and there are cricket nets located between the basketball courts and the oval. The Basketball courts are used for many sports activities as well as during recess and after school. Netball hoops are included on two of the towers. 

As part of the learning environment, Lilydale West Primary School has extensive garden areas planted with mostly native and some exotic species. Large beautiful trees are a significant feature of our grounds. We also have extensive herb and vegetable gardens. The school is part of the Sustainable Schools program, through which we endeavour to develop a sense of pride in the school environment and encourage the children to take part in projects that foster understanding of the conservation and taking care of their environment.
