Why Gardenvale Primary School?
At Gardenvale Primary School our goal, as an effective learning community, is the achievement of excellence and the fulfilment of potential in a happy, caring and safe environment.
We celebrate our cultural diversity and we strive to actively engage our students in a wide variety of meaningful learning tasks. We offer challenging learning experiences in core curriculum and a wide range of enrichment programs.
Through the delivery of a balanced, broad curriculum and systematic approach to teaching and learning, the learning needs of individual students to realise their potential, are met in a supportive and co-operative learning environment.
The focus on an inquiry based curriculum that utilises and extends the application of contemporary learning technologies in collaborative learning environments provides engaging and stimulating opportunities for students to extend themselves beyond their years. These learning opportunities and improvements are maintained through a lens of wellbeing.
Our values based approach ensures that students from diverse backgrounds are united under a consistent and equitable umbrella that values all stakeholders yet provides a common connection of learning and diversity.
