Prep Enrolments for 2021

We look forward to welcoming our 2021 Prep students and their families to the Sandringham Primary School community.

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 our Prep Class of 2021

Introducing our Sandy Primary Village...

As many families would know, Sandringham Primary School was severely damaged by fire in early 2020.  Whilst this has been a very difficult time for our school community, our Sandy Primary School spirit has shone bright and we are very proud of the continuation of quality teaching and learning achieved by our teachers and students.

The main lesson we have all learnt in 2020 is that it is people who make a school.

With that in mind, our school community looks forward to welcoming our Prep Class of 2021.  Whilst our new school is being built, Sandringham Primary has created an impressive temporary school on the land adjacent to Sandringham College's Junior Campus buildings (enter from Lansell Avenue).  It's our Sandy Primary Village, our home for 2020 and 2021, where our classrooms will provide the excellence in learning, teaching and relationships for which Sandringham Primary is renowned.

School Tours and Further Information

Our Principal, Mrs Louise Neave, is pleased to offer personalised tours to prospective families (with respect for and adherence to social-distance considerations and any current government restrictions).
