A message from our Principal
Hello and welcome to Glenferrie Primary School. My name is Sue O’Sullivan and I am proud to be the Principal of this school.
At Glenferrie Primary we are really fortunate to have a vibrant, diverse and active school community with really committed teachers. When students, teachers and parents work together as part of a dynamic learning community, amazing learning experiences are achieved.
We deliver a comprehensive education that offers a broad curriculum with rich experiences in Inquiry learning, Literacy, Numeracy, Italian, Physical Education, Performing and Visual Arts, all supported by an extensive array of learning technologies.
Our school values of Respect, Excellence, Confidence and Resilience support the learning. We aim to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring students who become active, compassionate and lifelong learners.
My focus as Principal is to ensure our students are given every opportunity to thrive and achieve their very best.
Please spend some time browsing through our website and learn more about what we do at Glenferrie. We have a lot to be proud of and would welcome the opportunity to share this with you and your child.
Remote Learning at GPS
Following advice from the Victorian Government on Monday 20th July, Glenferrie Primary School will be moving to remote and flexible learning from Term 3.
This is a step all Victorian government schools are taking to help slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). This means that all students who can learn at home must learn from home. This is a very clear directive from the Victorian Government based on the advice of the Chief Health Officer.
We will continue to offer limited on-site learning for those students who need to access this, including for students on days when they are not able to be supervised at home and no other arrangements can be made. We will provide further information about this shortly.
The Department’s latest advice on coronavirus can be found at: https://www.education.vic.gov.au/coronavirus
It is important that we work together and support each other during this challenging time. We will be in touch with staff and parents and carers shortly with further details of what remote and flexible learning will look like at our school.
In the meantime, you might find it useful to look at the Department’s Learning from Home website. It provides resources and guidance for teachers and parents and carers.
