Thank you for considering enroling your child at Gardenvale Primary School. Your child is setting out on the first exciting steps of their formal learning journey. We do not yet know what the world will be like when he or she completes their primary and secondary schooling. What we do know is how important the school’s role is to nurture happy and resilient students. We look forward to working in partnership with you to support your child over their seven years of primary school education.
Students residing in our zone are guaranteed a place at our school, which is determined on the basis of your permanent residential address. The Department provides guidance through the School Placement Policy to ensure that students have access to their designated neighbourhood school and the freedom to choose other schools, subject to facility limitations.
In order to maintain the school’s identity, prestige, tone and spirit and to foster a sense of pride, students at Gardenvale Primary School wear a school uniform. Supervision and safety on school excursions is enhanced by wearing a uniform and it also increases inclusiveness and reduces the wearing of inapprorpiate clothing amongst our students.
Gardenvale Primary School is proud to partner with Camp Australia to provide our Outside School Hours Care (OSHC) and Holiday Club programs. As the most experienced OSHC provider in Australia, Camp Australia provides a safe, reliable, engaging and affordable program at our school, to help families balance time and responsibilities in the crucial times outside school hours – and between terms too.
