- St Patrick`s Primary School
One-hundred-and-sixty students attend St Patrick`s from grade prep to six. Running for about 130 years, the school offers the benefits of operating in a small, close-knit community, with teachers knowing each student by name and vice versa. Parents are actively involved in the day-to-day running of the school, participating in a variety of educational activities.
- Koroit & District Primary School
- Koroit Pre-school
Health and Aged Care
- Medical Clinic
The health and wellbeing of Koroit's residents is catered for by the Jamieson Street Medical Clinic, which operates out of the former nursing home in High Street five mornings a week. This ensures a comprehensive standard of care for all people of the district and reduces the need to travel to another town.
- Koroit and District Memorial Health Services
Koroit and District Memorial Health Services began as a hospital in 1955. Featuring a full medical centre and maternity section, many of the districtís residents were born there! However, in 1993 the health service became a 30-bed nursing home and beds are now in demand from people throughout the district.
There are also around 30+ community groups in the town, including Scouts, Girl Guides, Red Cross, Apex, Lions, Friends of Tower Hill and more. Sporting groups feature prominently, with the town's football netball club reigning premiers in both the football and netball sectors.
