Transition to Prep 2021
Our school community warmly welcomes our 2021 Prep families to Sandy Primary. We are very proud of our school and look forward to sharing this pride and sense of community with you and your family.
Enrolment Acceptance Letters were recently sent to families who have enrolled to join us for Prep in 2021. If you haven’t already done so, please complete and return that documentation as soon as possible to assist with class planning. Please contact the School Office if you did not receive this correspondence.
Whilst our highly regarded Prep Transition Program will look a little different this year in these unprecedented times, for now, we are pleased to share the following videos to introduce you and your family to life at Sandringham Primary School.
Welcome to Sandringham Primary School
As one of Victoria’s oldest primary schools, Sandringham Primary has educated children since 1855 and is a beloved and respected part of the Bayside community.
With around 500 students and a dedicated and highly professional teaching team, I am pleased to introduce a school enriched by both our history and our school’s five values, which we strive to demonstrate every day:
Respect. Resilience. Relationships. Responsibility. Resourcefulness.
The values have been called upon more than ever by our school community, since fire destroyed more than half of the buildings at Sandringham Primary School in February, 2020.
We lost buildings, but the spirit of the Sandy Primary community – one that has always been legendary - has flourished. And we continue to look forward.
In the months following, we have prioritised the continuation of teaching and learning every day. We created our Sandy Primary Village – a temporary school home for 2020 and 2021 – on the land adjacent to Sandringham College on Lansell Avenue. Our classrooms are well-resourced and set up with love by our amazing teachers. We provide continued excellence in student learning and wellbeing. Our outdoor play area provides plenty of play space within a secure environment, along with an adored fairy garden and many outdoor play resources for daily adventures! There is also unprecedented opportunity for our students to enjoy the facilities of Sandringham College through collaboration across Performing Arts, Visual Arts, P.E. and science.
As our day to day learning thrives, we also watch with anticipation the efficient progress to rebuild our home at Bamfield Street, to which we will return in 2022. The creation of a school that combines state of the art learning facilities with our school’s rich history is incredibly exciting, and I feel privileged to lead our school community in these integral times.
You will find more information about our school throughout the pages on this website. If you would like more detail about enrolments or any aspect of Sandringham Primary School, you are welcome to contact our School Office on 9598 1488.
