Principal's Message

I would like to take the opportunity to welcome you to the 2018 school year at Grahamvale Primary School.

We have another challenging and exciting year ahead - working collaboratively with all key stakeholders to ensure we are providing the best possible education for all of our students and to keep our expectations high at all times – to take our students from the floor to the ceiling!

We are ready for the mission of preparing all students to be successful, life-long learners. Our school community is dedicated to providing our students with a well-rounded educational experience. While the core curriculum is provided for all students, we believe that it is critical to provide other opportunities to prepare students to compete with their global counterparts.

There are strong staff and teacher-student relationships at every level and the genuine care and support for every student is evident.

This year will be filled with numerous learning opportunities for our students, as well as our parents. Grahamvale Primary School takes great pride in establishing an atmosphere that invites its valued stakeholders to be a part of the educational process. Throughout the year, parents will be provided with many opportunities to participate in the education of their child. We also welcome your attendance at school events and encourage your participation by volunteering in our school. You are a valued member of our team!

At Grahamvale, we promote our school values of:
• Team work – learning and playing as part of a team
• Respect – respecting ourselves, others and the environment around us
• Community – being a responsible member of the school and wider community
• Personal Best – being our best, aiming high and never giving up!

As a school, we continue to work together as staff, students and families to build a common understanding of the school values and to incorporate these into our ways of working together. The school values are on display in all classrooms and work areas. These are discussed with students and are reflected on in all that we do.
“Education is a shared commitment between dedicated teachers, motivated students and enthusiastic parents with high expectations.” ~ Bob Beauprez
