Keysborough Gardens Primary School is a new school in Homeleigh Rd Keysborough South. The school officially opened its doors on the 28th January 2020 school year with an enrolment of 162 students. Our enrolment is estimated to peak at around 800 students, with long term enrolments to be around 500 students.
The school is located on a landscaped 2.2 hectare site in Keysborough South, approximately 27 km south-east of Melbourne and 7km inland from Port Phillip Bay. In an area once made up of market gardens and semi-rural properties, Keysborough South is now undergoing significant residential growth.
Keysborough Gardens Primary School will serve a steadily growing and culturally diverse community, with many of the residents born overseas.
The two levels of the main building contain a variety of flexible collaborative learning spaces, explicit instruction glassed rooms, presentation spaces, quiet reading or small group nooks, specialist art, science and creative activities labs, games and construction/storytelling settings, a learning terrace for outdoor learning activities, staff work spaces and toilets.
The Performing Arts and Physical Education building is a well-equipped self-contained sports stadium and performing arts facility. It contains a large gym, a music room, foyer/ informal learning area, the school canteen, toilets, staff offices and service spaces. It also houses our Before & After School Care program run by Big Childcare.
The grounds include sports courts, outdoor learning areas, an ampi-theatre, a grassed playing field and a central plaza, with landscaped gardens completing a stimulating external learning environment.
The school class structure will adapt to enrolment growth. Currently our multi-age approach provides the personalised learning programs within groups from years 1 to 6, with exact groupings dependent upon enrolments. Separate/straight foundation classes are anticipated. Whilst home groups will be formed, a differentiated program will cater for individual learning needs.
The range of specialist programs will grow with the school, currently our programs include Physical Education, Performing Arts and Visual Arts. A Learning Enhancement/Individual Needs program is also one of our priorities, along with extra-curricular enrichment programs.
The staffing profile is built upon the principles of a highly effective Professional Learning Community, recruiting educators with a range of teaching experience, backgrounds and expertise.
