Education Week 22–28 May 2022

By | News

This year, Education Week runs from 22–28 May. The theme, ‘150 Years of Public Education’ commemorates the past, celebrates the present and imagines the future of education in Victoria.

Education Week is an opportunity for our secondary school to highlight our education journey.

Essendon Keilor College has a long and proud history that continues to positively influence the present and inspire the future.


The current college was founded in 1993 with the amalgamation of five schools: Avondale Heights High School, Essendon High School, Essendon Technical School (Queens Park Secondary College), Keilor Heights High School, and Niddrie High School. Long serving principal, Doug Rob (1993-2006), guided the College through this important stage in its history, galvanising the good will of the community and using it to develop a new, unifying identity that worked for everyone.


Use the hashtag #EdWeekVic to get involved on social media.

RUOK Day  Message from Student Leaders

In partnership with you we are constantly building and developing skills for our young people at EKC including self-care, help seeking, problem solving, building a tool kit of coping strategies, and increasing awareness of internalised feelings and thoughts.


As part of this endeavour, we are promoting RUOK? Day on 9/9/21 with a focus on strategies for connecting and having a conversation, such as those with your young person. Chatstarter (helping parents and young people support each other) has easy-to-use tips and resources to help build your confidence and capability to support your young person who may be experiencing distress or a mental health challenge in these difficult times. Having a small chat can make a big difference.
