Welcome to Sunshine North Primary School

  •  principalOur Mission and Philosophy

    We extend a warm welcome to your family and friends and hope you will form a close and rewarding relationship with our school.

    Sunshine North Primary School actively promotes a strong sense of community partnership through cooperation and collaboration between staff, students and parents. We ensure the provision of a safe, supportive, creative and stimulating environment that sets high expectations and encourages all students to engage in their learning and to strive for excellence.

    Our school is a P-6 school of 310 students. Established in 1956, it is located 16 kilometers west of Melbourne in North Sunshine and serves a diverse socio-economic and cultural community. The student population reflects the diversity of the surrounding neighborhood with over 20 nationalities represented by 27 different languages and 241 of our students coming from families with a non-English speaking background.

    Sunshine North Primary School has a robust program for students with disabilities and is a Stephanie Alexander Kitchen/Garden school.

    Our school values are: Excellence, Respect, Co-operation, Courtesy, and Responsibility. Our values are statements of belief about attitudes, skills, and approaches to learning that we want to foster in our students. They are intended to permeate and to be reflected by every aspect of school life, in and out of the classroom, as well as home and community life. In addition, they can be seen as broad statements of purpose that focus the school’s energies in curriculum, programs, and policies.

    As the principal, my door is always open to parents to discuss their child’s progress or anything else related to school. If you would like to organise a visit to our school, please contact us on 93112400 0r email sunshine.north.ps@edumail.vic.gov.au
