About the project

We built a new primary school in Greenvale. It opened in 2021 and helps the growing local population get great education close to home. 

Loren Peavey was appointed as the first principal. Enrolments are now open for Prep to Year 6. 

Your new school includes:

  • 2 learning neighbourhoods
  • an administration building
  • outdoor play courts
  • a performing arts and physical education building
  • a sports field.

Further information on the school, including enrolment, can be found on its official Facebook Page.

Greenvale West Integrated Community Centre is located next to the school. This may help local children make a smooth transition from preschool and reduce the number of drop-offs for some parents with kinder and school aged-children. 

Supported inclusion

This school is a supported inclusion school. This school has specialised facilities and capabilities designed to accommodate students with disabilities.

School name

Keelonith Primary School (pronounced keel-on-ith)  was chosen as the school name following community consultation and discussions with Geographic Names Victoria, with consideration given to factors including public interest, relevance to the local area, and the consideration of local Indigenous languages.

Keelonith is from the Woi-wurrung language, as spoken by the Wurundjeri people, and means ‘hear and understand’.

We consulted with local communities for 3 weeks from Wednesday 24 June to Wednesday 15 July 2020. Thank you for your input.


Funding was provided in the 2017–18 State Budget to buy land in this area for a new school.

In the 2019–20 State Budget, the school shared in $624.8 million allocated for new schools.
