Upwey Primary School is situated in the Dandenong Ranges, approximately thirty-five kilometres to the east of Melbourne. The school was established in 1934 and has a current enrolment of just under 100 students. The “old” double storey building was officially opened in 1947. Upwey Primary School offers our students an attractive setting, extensive grounds and a variety of playgrounds. We have modern buildings and are located on a natural picturesque site that takes advantage of the beauty of the Dandenong Ranges. All of the buildings are located on a level section of land adjacent to Burwood Highway.
We are very luck and in an unique situation where our outdoor area is enormous, even when considering the population of the school. Upwey High School is just next door, which makes drop off time much easier for larger families. Upwey train station and Main St are a safe, two minute walk through the Burwood Hwy underpass. Sherbrooke Family & Children’s Centre is location even closer. The Yarra Ranges Council’s newest building houses leading edge childcare and Maternal and Child Health services for the community.
