Approximately 65 students attend Sandy Creek PS, with 3 classrooms accommodating these students. Our specialised subjects are Japanese (Language Other than English) and Technologies.
We have a strong cultural exchange program which has Japanese students from Minami Aiki visiting us every year and our school Yr 5,6,7 students being offered the opportunity to stay in a Japanese village every second year. This exchange between the two sister schools has been successfully ongoing for 22 years.
We work very hard to provide all students, regardless of academic ability, with the best possible support in the classroom. We provide many hours of SSO support in our classrooms to assist our classroom teachers and our students. We also provide students with the opportunity to participate in support programs such as MiniLit, TooSmart and Quicksmart Maths where needed to support and extend their learning.
We have a strong flavour of Digital Technologies throughout the school. Students are able to access ipads, laptops and a computer suite. We have invested in a number of educational programs for students to access at school to support their learning through this technology. We also teach computer coding across the school. The aim of the use of technology is to add ‘value to learning’.
Our picturesque and spacious grounds are a lovely environment to learn and play within. We have many play spaces and nature play areas for students to use.
Sandy Creek and Cockatoo Valley are part of a very tranquil and relaxing area of the state.
