History

The Killara vision is “Our Best – Every Child, Every Day” and we strive to uphold our vision by enacting our mission, where we recognise the extraordinary responsibility and privilege it is to educate our students.

 

Our school values are Caring, Acceptance, Responsibility, Excellence and Support and teamwork (CARES).

 

Killara Primary School opened in 1993, in what was a rapidly expanding area of housing estates on the northwest fringe of Sunbury within the City of Hume.

 

The school has a period of rapid growth from 1993 to 2000 where the student population went from 103 to a peak of 641. The current population of the school is currently just above 600 students.

 

The school is situated on extensive grounds and the core building comprises of ten general-purpose classrooms, each with a shared teacher preparation area and a small group withdrawal room. Specialist teaching areas are also present, including a Music Room, Art Room, Library and a large gymnasium. Curriculum is provided in each of these areas with a specialist teacher.

 

In addition to this, the school has a freestanding block of 6 general-purpose classrooms and 10 re-locatable classrooms. Our buildings are in excellent condition and all programs are well resourced.

 

Through recent building works, Killara now has a full basketball court sized gym, as well as a theatre that incorporates a stage, tiered seating as well as lighting and a sound system. Curriculum is provided in each of these areas with a specialist teacher.
