Our Lady of the Pines Catholic Primary School is a co-educational primary school catering for students in the Donvale and surrounding areas. The first stage of Our Lady of the Pines was completed for opening in early 1978 with an enrolment of 147 students. In 1990 the church was built and the community became an independent parish.
A three-stage building program was completed in 1986 and in 1997 a new building containing six learning areas was added. In 1999, four of the original classrooms were replaced with a new brick-veneer complex containing four new learning areas and amenities. Major refurbishment of the original building took place in 2008.
The Physical Education and Community Enrichment Centre (P.EA.C.E. Centre), a performing arts and basketball court with adjoining meeting and office rooms, was constructed under the ‘Building Education Revolution’ program. This building, which was funded by the Federal government and the school, was completed in 2010.
In 2018, the school undertook a $2.65 million refurbishment to the school and its surrounds. This project has provided a new and welcoming administration entry to the school and enhance the wonderful facilities and grounds we have at Our Lady of the Pines.
