Welcome from the Principal

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Dandenong West Primary School. I hope this website is able to inform you of our school initiatives, our culture and learning environment, that is at the core of Dandenong West.

Dandenong West is a KIDSMATTER School; all our students matter to every staff member. We are focused on, and committed to, supporting all students to reach their full potential, academically, socially and emotionally.


At Dandenong West we set high expectations for our students learning and behaviour and our experienced staff develop strong relationships, with all students, so that we achieve this goal.


We know that families are the first and foremost educators of their children and we provide a range of opportunities for all members of our community; students, parents, carers and the wider community, to be involved with the school. These include a Playgroup for pre-school children and a Good Morning club for students to come before school to have breakfast and socialize with others. We also encourage our community to be involved in the day-to-day activities of our school, including supporting students in the classroom, hearing reading, helping on special events, attending excursions and many more.
