 Dandenong Primary School has a long and rich history, having served the local community for nearly 140 years. The first State School was built at the corner of Robinson and Foster Streets and officially opened its doors on May the fourth 1874. The first Head Teacher was Malcolm MacPherson.

The school had an enrolment of approximately 200 students when it moved to the Foster Street site in 1881. This steadily grew through the first half of the twentieth century and then the peak enrolment of 760 pupils was reached in 1960. Enrolment numbers dropped as schools in Doveton and Noble Park opened. We now have 320 students, with families representing 45 different nationalities.
