A brand new primary school, is being built at the corner of Harrington Waters Drive, in the Harrington Waters Private Estate. The current school is in houses in Lonsdale Crescent and has been a temporary accommodation for the past five years. The growth in population from Harrington Waters Estate has meant an increase in student numbers, resulting in the Department of Education finalising its plans to build the new school. The school will cater for 480 Students and is due to open in early 2008, adding a further choice to the existing primary and senior schools already located within the suburb.
