Starting school is a major milestone in a child’s life. It is an exciting and emotional time for both you, as parent, and your child. The transition can be made smoother through your positive encouragement and partnership with your child’s school. Together, we can support your child on their learning journey to achieve their potential.

School Tours

We invite prospective parents to tour the school and see our programs in action.  School tours are usually held every Monday at 2pm, Wednesday at 9.30am and Friday at 9.30am during the school term.  Please contact the school office to make a booking or to discuss a mutually convenient time.  +61 3 9598 1704

International Students are Welcome

Our school is able to receive international fee paying students. More information is available on the Department of Education's website.

If your child is an Australian citizen, no fees are payable and enrolment may commence immediately once you arrive. For certain categories of permanent and long term residency, the same applies.

However, if your child is travelling on a visitor visa, a student visa or short term residency visa, you may need to pay fees to the Victorian Government prior to starting school. In this case, please contact the Principal on walton.laureen.e@edumail.vic.gov.au and we will reserve a place for your child and organise forms and information to be sent to you. The process then is that you will make arrangements with the Department of Education and Training to pay fees. Your child may then commence at Sandringham East as soon as they arrive.

School tours with our Principal, Laureen Walton can be arranged.  Phone +61 3 9598 1704
