I attended Upwey State School in 1954 I am 67 years old so that makes it 61 years ago. My father owned a Real Estate Agency in Upwey and he flew the fire spotting plane. I have wonderful memories of attending the Upwey State School.
We recently moved from Rowville to Tecoma and I looked at numerous schools for my daughter. We decided on Upwey Primary and it was the best decision I ever made. My daughter came from a school of over 700 students to Upwey’s 94 students and was immediately made to feel welcome by all the other students, teachers and parents. What I love about the school is that being so small, everybody knows everybody, we know everyone’s name and each student is given all the attention that they need. It’s a real family environment at the school and all the staff genuinely care for each and every student. Upwey Primary has far exceeded my expectations and I know my daughter has been given a great advantage in life by going to such a caring, educational and family-orientated school.”
