Gundaroo Public School is a community-based school which currently has an enrolment of 130 students across 5 classes. Students are educated in a positive, caring, safe and inclusive environment. We actively promote a culture of learning where individual needs are met and each student is responsible for their own learning. A strong culture of collaboration exists within the school, and teachers are supported to develop and implement high-quality teaching and learning experiences.
We are a small school with high educational expectations. We value the involvement and participation of the community in supporting the students and school programs. We are committed to a collaborative community approach, and building a culture of mutual respect with open and honest communication, all of which is underpinned by our school’s core values.
Our partnership with the P&C and wider school community has enabled us to deliver on our goals of providing outstanding facilities for student learning. We have a synthetic-turf tennis court and cricket pitch, film and recording studio, multi-purpose art, cooking and science room, as well as sets of tablets (iPads) and laptops in every classroom. Our well-resourced library sits within a beautiful, heritage-listed building; one of the original classrooms. We aim to repay the generosity by making these facilities available and accessible to the community as best we can.
As we endeavour to provide a holistic, well-rounded education for the students in our care, our priority areas are strong literacy and numeracy teaching, effective and evidence-based classroom practice, wellbeing and sustainability. Adventure, imagination and curiosity is fostered in learning experiences, and our vast playground provides the perfect space for these qualities to thrive.
With 156 years of history and tradition behind us, we are committed to maintaining what is amazing about our school, whilst also moving forward to ensure we are providing the best educational experiences for the students in our care.
We feel incredibly privileged to be a part of this story, and as a member of the Gundaroo community, invite you to join us on this journey and see for yourself what Gundaroo Public School has to offer.
