Victoria bills itself as The Education State and we know that parents everywhere want the state to live up to its title. For many families living within (or considering) Satterley communities, nothing is more important than proximity to schools.

In this guide, we’ll tell you about some of the many education options within easy reach of Bluestone, Tarniet.

This is one of the very newest schools in the area, having opened its doors at the start of 2021. Naturally, the facilities are state-of-the-art and in excellent condition.

Importantly, a large part of Bluestone falls within the Garrang Wilam school zone.
