Our School - History

Edney Primary School was built and officially opened by the then Minister for Education Dr Carmen Lawrence on December 8th, 1989.

The foundation principal was Mr Vin Marelich and during that year a time capsule including a contribution from every child was set down. The time capsule was opened at the 25th anniversary of the school in 2014. Additional teaching blocks were added as enrolments grew and in the year 1999 enrolment peaked at 624 students from Kindergarten to Year 7.

Today, Edney has an enrolment of approximately 400 students from Kindergarten to Year 6 housed in permanent, well-maintained buildings and high quality facilities including a new early childhood block and specialist music, visual arts and computing rooms. Our students are diverse, and embody our core values of respect and excellence.
