History:

St Andrew’s School was first established in 1908 in the old bluestone church. The leadership of the school was taken over by the Sisters of St Joseph in 1910 and they remain involved in the school today. The first buildings on the present site were built in 1920 and blessed and opened by His Grace, Archbishop Daniel Mannix. Since its early beginnings St Andrew’s has gone through many changes and building programs to become a modern school educating children for the present as well as the future. St Andrew’s has a long history of educating children, and families are proud to belong to a place they love. The school enjoys a very supportive, active and loyal parent body which enhances our school community spirit. Together we live the Gospel, love our God and each other, and learn as we travel together.


Description:

St Andrew’s is the first of four parish primary schools in the Parish of St Andrew’s. Being the oldest school we are situated across from the church of St Andrew’s. We believe this to be a great asset as it allows us to focus the children’s attention on the teachings of Jesus in our everyday dealings with each other. We are a school committed to the education of the whole child, intellectually, spiritually and socially. We have 16 classes from Prep to Year 6. As a school we are divided into four levels, Prep, Years 1 & 2, Years 3 & 4 and Years 5 & 6. This allows us to cater to the individual needs of the children at each level while endeavouring to reach the outcomes as set out in the Victorian Curriculum and Standards Framework (CSF II).


Features:

We place a great importance on the ability of each child to reach his/her potential whatever that may be. Because of this we devote a lot of our resources into assisting those children with special needs. In particular, we have developed the St Andrew’s Special Education Unit that works with those children who need a little extra help or extension. As well, we have a commitment to assisting children to live and work in the 21st century. Information Technology is a focus of our school, with the whole school networked and connected to the Internet so that classes can work with the latest information available. We also have created a technology room with 17 computers which allows classes to work on a variety of projects that are technology based.
