Principal’s Message

Welcome to Springvale Rise Primary School’s website. Thank-you for taking the time to visit.

At Springvale Rise Primary School we aspire to create an inclusive and respectful learning environment that nurtures, supports, inspires and challenges all members of the school community to achieve and celebrate their personal best within a culture of collaboration, shared responsibility and high expectations. Three key characteristics which underpin this vision are: our students being at the centre of the school’s curriculum planning, and learning and teaching models with a focus on the whole child; student and adult learning that is supported through a culture of collaboration and shared responsibility; and high expectations. “Two Campuses – One School”.

At Springvale Rise Primary School our core values are:

  • Collaboration – Working together to create something new and with a common goal in mind.
  • Excellence – Empowering all members of the school community to achieve and celebrate their personal best within a culture of high expectations.
  • Resilience – Bouncing back from difficulties or disappointments. Accepting challenges, trying hard and not giving up easily.
  • Respect – Caring for, understanding, accepting and appreciating others and ourselves. Looking after our environment. Celebrating diversity – diversity of cultural background, diversity of religion, diversity of thinking. Honesty, integrity and consideration.

We believe in the importance of student voice, leadership and agency and students engaging in rich, meaningful and stimulating learning experiences. Students are encouraged to have high expectations of themselves as learners and to develop positive work habits. Student leadership is nurtured across all levels with educators and families working in partnership to continually improve both student learning and student well-being.
I hope that our website answers many of the questions you may have about our school and assists you in gaining a picture of what we have to offer. If you have any further questions, or would like to visit our school, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Keep Smiling. . .

About Our School

Springvale Rise Primary School is a dual-campus government sector school located in the South-Eastern Victoria Region, approximately twenty-five (25) kilometres from the Melbourne city centre. The Heights Campus is located in north Springvale while the Springvale Campus is located in the Central Business District of Springvale.
Foundation to Year 6 programs operate on both campuses. On Census Day in 2018, the school had an official total enrolment of 534 students (a stable enrolment trend). Approximately 83% of these students have origins outside of Australia and a Language Background Other Than English, and a very small proportion of these children are international students. In 2018, the school offers specialist programs in Visual Arts, Physical Education-Sport, STEM and LOTE (Vietnamese).

Springvale Rise Primary School has a Community Hub, which was established in 2014 in partnership with Community Hubs Australia and the Scanlon Foundation, which continues to grow from strength to strength; collaborating with a variety of partnering organisations in order to ensure a suite of programs customised to the needs of the local community are offered throughout the year. Weekly Hub programs currently include three playgroups, three English language / conversation classes, yoga and computer sessions, along with a Cultural Learning Club and a Women’s Friendship Group. In 2017, sixteen of our mothers completed a Level 1 Food Handling course and a dozen women participated in the Peace and Prosperity Kitchen Garden Program at Government House.

History:
Springvale Rise Primary School (5537 Springvale) is derived from the merger of two schools on 8 January 2010 (5373 Springvale Heights Primary School and 3507 Springvale Primary School). Even though our dual campus school is young at heart, each campus has a very rich history of strong and supportive engagement with the local community.

Heights Campus

The Heights Campus is positioned in a well-established residential area and features two modern open-plan learning centres, a synthetic basketball court, state-of-the-art playground equipment, large grassed playing fields and a kindergarten (which operates in partnership with the City of Greater Dandenong and BestChance).

Springvale Campus

Approximately two (2) kilometres south, the Springvale Campus is located in central Springvale and bordered by both residential and commercial zones. The original, redbrick schoolhouse now accommodates the administration offices, whilst the refurbished classrooms, synthetic oval and inviting play areas all contribute to a learning environment of which the whole community is proud.
