Dunsandel School is a Year 1-6 school which is situated about 20 minutes south of Christchurch. We are a contributing primary school with the majority of our children attending Ellesmere College when they leave us. In 2016 we have seven classes, a supportive Board of Trustees and PTA and 145 awesome children. The school is well supported by the wider community and is an important part of the Dunsandel area.
I am proud to be the Principal of our school and it is an honour to be part of the Dunsandel School community. If you would like further information about school please don't hesitate to contact us.
Kind Regards
Dave Robinson; Principal
