Vision Primary School Sandakan
Venue: Jalan Sek Menengah Kebangsaan Sandakan II, 90000 Sandakan

Our Vision
To be at the forefront of the education scene in Sabah, changing society’s view on education and beyond. We prepare our students for life, instead of just exams. Our point of difference is that we believe in ‘Character Above Academics’ where a person who has good, Godly character will be able to achieve success in life, even if they did not do well in their exams. We look into the child as a person, instead of just another student who needs to get good grades.


Welcome to Vision Primary School Sandakan!
Owned and run by the Anglican Church, we are a continuation of the work that started 130 years ago in St. Michael’s School, St. Monica’s School and St. Gabriel’s School. Vision Primary School Sandakan started in January 2017 with 3 classes; we take in 2 new classes of Primary 1 every year, until we bring everyone up to graduate in Form 5.

Why Vision School?
The Vision School was set up to glorify God. As a church-run school we believe that ‘The Fear of The Lord is the Beginning of Wisdom ~ Proverbs 1:7’. We hope that we will bring quality education to the people in Sandakan; we hope that we will build character; that our students will be of good and Godly character, who will impact society in a positive way, contributing to nation building and creating a positive impact globally.

How can we achieve this?
Our work is based on our Core Values which can be summarised as GET.

G – God-centred;
We believe in the impartation of Godly values in our classrooms and daily lessons to produce students who are wise in their actions and decisions. We believe in the Bible being the word of God, which has the power to change lives.

E – Education for Life;
Our lessons are planned so that students experience the learning and become independent learners so that they will be better equipped to face a future that will change constantly. We are also focused on 21st Century Skills of Critical Thinking, Creativity, Communication, Collaboration, Character & Citizenship.
T – Thinking People;

Our aim is to provide our students and teachers with an environment that is free for them to question everything. Our lessons are designed in such a way that questions become the basis of our learning. Students are encouraged to ask questions which they will find answers to on their own, while teachers enter a class with a set of questions that the students need to answer before the end of the class.
