NAIDOC WEEK 2018 – Because of her we can!

Ronnie Jordan, a Kalkadoon woman living in Bungendore, joined our NAIDOC Week celebrations on Tuesday 3 July. The theme for NAIDOC Week in 2018 is “Because of her we can!” Ronnie engaged our students from K-6 in the traditional practice of doll making and weaving. She used both modern and traditional materials. Ronnie also spoke to our students about the important role Aboriginal women have had in our community throughout history and into today.

Welcome to the Giralang Primary School website. Our school is 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.

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 40 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 Preschool to Year 6.

Our school has a strong values program. 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 direction 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
