About the project

We built a new primary school for Keysborough. Take a virtual tourExternal Link and experience this school through the eyes of its students.

The school will help ease enrolment pressures at surrounding schools and meet future demand from a growing population. The school, designed by Architectus and K2LD as part of the Growth Areas Schools Project, was a winner of the 'Minister's Award for Excellence' in the 2019 Victorian School Design AwardsExternal Link .

Further information on the school can be found at its official Facebook pageExternal Link .

A hub with an early learning centre is being planned close to Keysborough Gardens Primary School. This will help local children make a smooth transition from pre-school and reduce the number of drop-offs for some parents with kinder and school-aged children.

School name

Keysborough Gardens Primary School was originally known by the interim name of Keysborough South Primary School while it was being planned and built.

The school's location was predominately market gardens in the past. The new name acknowledges this history, and helps the school form an identity connected to the area.

The Department of Education chose this name after consulting with local communities on the names for all schools opening in 2020. To reach a final decision, the Department considered this community feedback along with the guiding principles for naming a new school.

Possible names for all the new schools were initially shortlisted by school advisory groups, who considered factors such as public interest, relevance to the local area, and local First Nations languages. The names were also chosen to help reflect each school's unique identity, inspire local pride and make them easily locatable.

Funding

The 2016–17 State Budget allocated funding to buy land in this area for a new school. The school received an additional $18.9 million in the 2018–19 State Budget for construction.
