School’s History On 18th September, 1983 the eve of our Nation Independence, hundreds of people from all parts of the island, witnessed the official opening of the Sandy Point Primary School. With much pride, our citizens; Sandy Pointers in particular and those affiliated with the school felt honored to have Her Majesty Princess Margaret cut the ribbon and declared the school opened. The Sandy Point Primary School evolved from the merging of the then Sandy Point Infants (Kindergarten to Grade 2) and the Sandy Point Junior (Grade 3 to Grade 6) Schools under the leadership of the first Head Teacher Ms. Rosabelle Warner.

We the Staff of the VioletPettyPrimary School take the responsibility of creating a communication network amongst parents, teachers and the community in order to enhance learning styles.
We also endeavour to instill positive attitudes, morals and valves in the children so that they may feel comfortable and acceptable regardless of their individual differences, social or economic background.
In order to develop each child morally spiritually, emotionally and mentally we believe that each child should:
● Recognise himself/herself as an individual and aspire to achieve excellence at all time.
● Be given the opportunity to work in an educational atmosphere that is comfortable and conducive to learning, so that he/she mount obstacles embarking to the secondary level with competent skills, which can succeed academically.
● Have a solid foundation, which will enable him/her to surmount obstacles embarking to the secondary level with competent skills, which will ultimately prepare them for the work force.
Education is the salvation of our nation and the Lodge Infant School was the salvation for the children of the Lodge community. Established in April 1969, under the leadership of the deceased head teacher, Mrs. Mary Charles George of Molineux, It served to affect change by imparting knowledge and skills to the Lodge community. The school was an affiliate of the Molineux All Age School with the Lodge Infant School educating students from kindergarten to grade three. The school was in charge of daily school activities but was subjected to the Molineux All Age School for its external affairs. The first teacher in charge was Ms. Violet Petty. She taught with her staff at the 4-H building where the Miracle Temple Church stands today. Eventually the school was moved to its present location on.
It was in 2001 that the school took on it present shape and name. The newly constructed school was named after its first teacher in charge.TheViolet Petty Primary School threw open its door in April of 2001 and was a fully functioning primary school in September of that same year.Mrs. Joycelyn Archibald Pennyfeather was its first head teacher with Ms. Lavern Brown as deputy. In 2005 a new head teacher arrived, in the person of Mrs. Joycelyn Archibald Pennyfeather, who is presently in charge.

Dear God make me the kind of son my daddy is!

Dear God make me the kind of man my son wants me to be.
