About St Andrews Primary School

Some of our key characteristics: 

  • Community driven and inclusive school with welcoming and friendly atmosphere

  • Child-centred learning - focus on the whole student as an individual

  • Supportive and aspirational  

  • Real learning as the basis of teaching

  • Arts integration: Visual arts, music program

In addition to our diverse learning programs, our students have spacious grounds to play and learn in. We have a full size football oval, access to tennis and basketball courts, two fantastic playgrounds and a sand and water play area for students to play in. One of our most favoured play areas is cubby land, an area where students work together to build cubbies in our bush setting.
