Fire caused significant damage to Sandringham Primary School at the beginning of 2020.
We are rebuilding parts of the school that were destroyed or lost in the fire. These new permanent facilities include modern indoor and outdoor learning areas, a library, an art workshop and staff facilities. The rebuild will also include outdoor play and sporting spaces that were damaged by the fire.
Students are currently located at a 'temporary village' at Sandringham College until 2022 (see 'interim location' below for more details).
Support services, including counselling, have been made available to staff and students.
From the beginning of Term 2, 2020, Sandringham Primary School has been located at a 'temporary village' located on the junior campus of Sandringham College (Bluff Road). We have worked with both school communities to ensure all students and staff continue to be a part of a great learning environment with minimal disruption.
At this stage, Sandringham Primary School students will remain at the Bluff Road village for the 2020 and 2021 school years until the rebuild is complete.
You can read about these plans in more detail here (PDF or Word).

We consulted the community on the rebuild from 3 - 25 March. The consultation included an online survey and a face-to-face event. We’ve used the feedback to create a What We Heard report which will help shape the design of the rebuilt school.
You can download the report in PDF or Word.
Designing and rebuilding a school can take up to two to three years. We are working hard to speed up this process for the rebuild of Sandringham Primary School.
Design for the rebuild is now complete and we have appointed a builder.
Construction will commence in Term 1, 2021 to ensure completion of the rebuild by early 2022.
