Location Profile

Seaspray Primary School (formerly Prospect Estate School) was established in 1916 and is a unique small school with spacious and well-kept grounds.  It is located 3 kilometres from the township of Seaspray and 32 kilometres from the city of Sale, in a picturesque rural setting overlooking Gippsland’s Ninety Mile Beach. As it is situated on the coast, the school benefits from cool sea breezes in the Summer and a mild climate in Winter.

We have a current enrolment of 7 students with 2  full time teachers (one being the Principal as well) and two teacher aides and a part time Administration Officer.  The school operates with two classrooms.  A teacher aide works in this multi grade structure alongside the 2 teachers. Students progress at individual rates with tailored teaching to meet their needs.

Small class sizes and individually focused teaching benefits all students.

Visitors to Seaspray Primary School are immediately aware of both the well maintained facilities and the excellent tone of the school.

Schooling takes place in a combination of historic and new buildings set on a spacious 4.5 hectare grounds including an art room with an adjacent outdoor learning area, library/music room, two shade shelter areas, two spacious classrooms with a networked computer facility and a staffroom/office block.  The school has two sports’ ovals, multi-use basketball/netball/ tennis court, cricket practice area, and a large  playground area.  The school has much loved chickens, well maintained gardens and fruit trees.

 At Seaspray Primary School we  aim to make a difference to every child’s educational growth through  our approach to learning. We provide all children with the foundations for achievement and social-emotional well-being. We help them begin their journey through life long learning with positive attitude and structured support.

 In our community we understand the power of a positive attitude, the desire to do more  and learn more. All staff are actively engaged in each child’s learning and are continually nurturing talents  through tailored teaching programs allowing children to achieve to their fullest potential.

 Parents are very supportive, and there is a healthy sense of community, all of which contribute to the advantages and unique qualities that exist in the life of a small rural school.

 Seaspray Primary School is a committed member of the Sale Rural Schools Cluster, enabling us to participate in a community of learners, reducing our small rural communities' isolation.  We are also a proud member of the Wellington Schools network, which brings together schools across the Wellington Shire.

 We provide a welcoming, family-friendly environment which encourages involvement in the school.
