Keilor Primary School

About this service

"Established in 1875, Keilor Primary School is located in the City of Brimbank. Originally located on top of the Bonfield Street Hill it was moved to the old police paddock at the bottom of the same hill in 1940. In 1960 the site was moved to Kennedy St in Keilor Village, where it remains today, adjacent to the football oval and close to the Keilor Village shopping centre. In October 1981 a fire destroyed the wooden section of the building which housed seven classrooms.

At commencement in 1875 the school had 35 students enrolled, one head teacher and an assistant (his wife), and by 1993 there were 11 classrooms, 17 teaching staff and 297 students. As we start 2013 we have in excess of 470 students, a staff of 43 (several are part time) and 21 classrooms.

Throughout the years, Keilor Primary School has created a distinctive presence within the local community as a progressive provider of high quality educational services and has continued to have an outstanding record of achievement.
