School Camp Out
In Term 2, the Junior School community attended the school camp out held on the oval. This has become a much-anticipated annual event enjoyed by staff, students and parents alike.
The Good Neighbour Program
SHPA is committed to establishing the Good Neighbour Program on the Sandringham House Campus as promoted by the Firbank Association. This program provides family assistance to members of our Sandringham House community at times when it is most needed. If you feel the need for some family support or know of a family who would benefit from such assistance, then please advise your Class Representative.
