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.
