The Andrews Labor Government is building the Education State so that every child has the opportunity to succeed.

The Labor Government last year delivered a record $730 million investment in schools so that every community has access to a great local school.

Scoresby Primary also received equity funding of $19,945 this year as part of the Labor Government’s Education State funding boost to provide extra $566 million to help schools and students most in need.

Scoresby Primary School was originally founded by the residents of the area in 1870 – before compulsory school education was introduced in Victoria – and now has 228 student enrolments.

Past students at the school include singer Kylie Minogue and writer/director Leigh Whannell.
