PRESCHOOL MATTERS GRANT
Giralang Primary School has successfully won a $1000 Preschool Matters Grant to establish a parent literacy corner in our Preschool Unit. We are hoping to strengthen parent engagement in the early years by creating a space where parents can share quality literature with their child in our educational setting.

GIRALANG PRIMARY SCHOOL TURNS 40!
On Saturday 21 October, our school community came together to mark the school's 40th birthday. The celebration culminated in a Guinness World Record Attempt at Musical Statues. Although we didn't quite make the required number of 1080 people, we did have just under 700 people dancing, laughing, freezing and having fun. Pictured above is the ACT Education Minster Yvette Berry, the original architect Enrico Taglietti, Giralang Primary School's first Principal Len Childs and current School Principal Belinda Love cutting the ceremonial cake.

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.
