Why Sandy Creek?

Currently, the educational debate is turning from a focus on results, towards greater concern about social cohesion, child welfare, mental health and poverty. And the case for children’s welfare at small schools is very strong.

As often mentioned, and reported, small schools have a positive ethos that fosters “a family atmosphere”, “great standards of behaviour” and “close links with parents and the community”. Upper Sandy Creek is no different having a long and proud history in the Sandy Creek Community.

In fact, our school community prides itself on the level of personal and social development our students achieve in the time they spend at our school. Student wellbeing is at the forefront of our planning and design for the learning that takes place at Upper Sandy Creek Primary.
