Principal's Message

Welcome to the Giralang Primary School website. As the newly appointed Principal I am quickly discovering what a happy, safe and vibrant learning environment this is characterised by strong community support and involvement. The vision statement - Adventure in Learning, Caring and Achieving - is clearly practiced and actioned every day.

Situated in the north Belconnen region of Canberra, Giralang Primary is a growing government school that caters for students from Preschool to Year 6. Our professional, supportive and innovative teaching team along with our highly skilled support staff take pride in delivering an excellent education in a warm and nurturing environment. We have a strong commitment to a personalised approach to learning in all curriculum areas with a special emphasis on literacy, numeracy and science to ensure the best possible outcomes for all students.

The aims of Giralang Primary School underpin everything we do. We are committed to:

  • creating an atmosphere of respect, encouragement and support for every child
  • developing each child's confidence and self-esteem together with a sensitivity to the needs of others
  • respecting each child's uniqueness and catering for individual needs
  • utilising each child's curiosity, creativity and preferred style of learning within the learning process
  • challenging and assisting each child to attain their potential in educational, social and physical skills
  • encouraging each child in self-discipline and involving the children wherever possible in establishing guidelines for responsible behaviour
  • providing a stimulating professional learning community where initiative, cooperation and participation in the development of excellent school policies is valued and encouraged

Giralang Primary has stimulating and flexible learning spaces, incorporating the latest in technology within the heritage surrounds of a school that has been serving the community for over 36 years. We provide students with the opportunity to develop their interests and abilities through programs designed for student success at the highest level in academic, sporting, cultural and performing arts areas. Giralang Primary students also have the opportunity to learn Japanese from Kindergarten to Year 6.

Our school has a strong values program 'Steps to the Star'. The program encourages students to be caring, cooperative and courteous both within the school community and outside of school in the wider community. Some say you can recognise a Giralang Primary student out of uniform as much as in it.

I am proud to be the Principal of Giralang Primary School and am excited about the directions our school is taking into the future. If you would like to know more about our school you are most welcome to contact the school to speak with me personally.

I do hope you enjoy exploring our website further to learn more about our wonderful school.

Best Wishes,

Belinda Love

Principal
