Keelonith Primary School (pronounced keel-on-ith) was chosen as the school name following community consultation and discussions with Geographic Names Victoria, with consideration given to factors including public interest, relevance to the local area, and the consideration of local Indigenous languages.
Keelonith is from the Woi-wurrung language, as spoken by the Wurundjeri
people, and means ‘hear and understand’.
We consulted with local communities for three weeks from Wednesday 24 June to Wednesday 15 July 2020. Thank you for your input.
