We built a new primary school for Keysborough.
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 will help ease enrolment pressures at surrounding schools and meet future demand from a growing population. Further information on the school can be found at its official Facebook page.

Keysborough Gardens Primary School is offering enrolments for P-6 in 2020.
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.
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
This 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 Awards.
