Our Vision

At Sheidow Park School, teachers facilitate engaging teaching and learning experiences with appropriate challenge and ongoing assessment. This is done within a safe classroom environment, where students can voice their opinions and take risks with their learning.

Students are aware of and encouraged to question and persist through the journey of their learning. Teachers and students have joint ownership of the learning environment, incorporating prior knowledge and interests with the understanding that mistakes are part of effective learning.

Our values

Respect, Responsibility
and Persistence



Sheidow Park School was opened in February 1980 and is an established R-7 School with a current enrolment of approximately 400 students.

In 2015 we introduced Steiner Education as an option for student Education. Sheidow Park is relatively secluded, as it is bounded by highways, established housing and the Southbank subdivision. It is well serviced by public transport, local shopping and community resources. The school is exceptionally well-resourced and there is strong parental interest and involvement in school sport, classroom programs and school administration.
