Welcome to Karoo

Karoo Primary School is located in Rowville, Victoria, and currently has an enrolment of 525 students spread across 23 classes.

The school has developed a positive culture of making a difference in students’ education and assisting them to achieve their potential.  Together with our community we aim to educate the whole child and provide them with lifelong learning skills. The school encourages a close relationship between home and school with the emphasis that education is a partnership between parents, students and teachers.

We are very fortunate to have modern high calibre classrooms with extensive equipment that facilitates student learning. We are very proud of our grounds that combine extensive artificial turf areas, 3 playgrounds and beautiful landscaping that promotes positive physical and passive play.



Due to the current health crises, our students are undertaking remote learning.
