Welcome to Keysborough Gardens Primary School!
I am honoured to be the Principal of Keysborough Gardens Primary School. I was fortunate to have been appointed as the founding Assistant Principal and started the KGPS journey in term 4 of 2019. Keysborough Gardens Primary School officially opened its’ doors to students in January of 2020. The school is steadily growing and will begin 2022 with 16 classes across Prep to Year 6.
As a new school community, we have continued to develop our own unique culture and identity, built upon our Vision and Values.

The core values of Kindness, Empathy, Gratitude, Respect and Excellence guide the daily interactions of all members of the Keysborough Gardens community.
As a school custom built for 21st century teaching and learning in flexible spaces- collaborative planning, learning and teaching within Professional Learning Communities frame our learning environment.
Our teaching staff, carefully recruited to bring a broad range of teaching experiences, backgrounds and expertise to our new school, teach and plan in collaborative teams to ensure the curriculum is differentiated to meet the needs of each individual students.
