History and New facilities

The Kilmore International School is modelled on international schools overseas. It was established in 1990 not so much to fill an ‘education gap’ within the region to the north of Melbourne but to provide a very different education experience for both local and international students who wished to study in a truly international environment. The buildings of the school were originally built in 1887 by the Marist Brothers and became Assumption College for boys. When Assumption became a co-educational school the buildings and grounds accommodated the girls’ boarding section of the school and a new school was built on the western side of what was then the old Hume Highway (now Sydney Road and Powlett Street). New classrooms including a library science wing drama and music wing art rooms computer rooms general classrooms along with staff rooms have been added over the next fifteen years as well as a motel style dormitory for girls which currently accommodates 43 students and 2 staff. In addition to these new buildings 10 homes have been purchased either adjacent to or near the school to accommodate boarding students. These homes have been extended and renovated to give students ensuite bathrooms and twin share rooms. When purchased the grounds of the school had never been developed and were basically bare paddocks. Since then extensive work has been carried out and now includes 2 soccer fields abaseball field basketball court and tennis courts.
