Principal’s Welcome

A community of learners, achieving together

Wandin North Primary School is a medium sized school of 292 students located 50km east of Melbourne. Our school is nestled in a bushland environment and first opened its doors in 1915. Wandin North has a record of being a safe, caring school with strong academic outcomes, community support and a commitment to continuous improvement. Student Learning Outcomes are consistently strong, which support effective teaching and learning practices. We have a whole school approach to instructional models so that as students transition through grades, they are hearing shared language which builds understanding over consecutive years.   We pride ourselves on knowing our students, academically and socially. We assess what our students know and plan for their individual needs. Students are engaged by setting their own personal learning goals and celebrating their success once achieved.

Our School values of Aim High, Show Respect, Be Organised and Bounce Forward are strongly evidenced by positive student behaviour and achievement of Values Awards. A positive approach to learning and wellbeing is used by staff and students through practicing Gratitude and developing a Growth Mindset. Wandin North Primary School has an agreed approach to student conduct, with clear expectations of behaviour evident in classrooms and in the playground. A strong partnership between home and school exists with very high levels of parent participation and involvement.

Thank you for showing an interest in our school and we look forward to welcoming you in for a school tour soon.
