Gooseberry Hill Primary School

An Independent Public School

We strive for excellence in all we pursue by motivating, challenging, supporting and assisting our children to reach their full potential.

Welcome to Gooseberry Hill Primary School

Gooseberry Hill Primary School is located approximately 20 kilometres from the CBD in a unique bush setting with nearby national parks and local reserves and it is often frequented by a range of bird life and native wildlife. The school was established in 1972 and during this time has created an enviable record of being a nurturing school, committed to excellence and supported by a caring community.

The School became an Independent Public School in 2012 and this has given the school community some measure of autonomy to steer its guided path in the government school system. The School caters for students from Kindergarten to Year 6.

The experienced school staff members have developed a real sense of community and commitment to the school and assist in developing and coordinating programs which assist students to learn.

FACTION CARNIVAL
It was fantastic to see so many parents here across the 3 days last week for our Faction Carnival. Despite the rain on Thursday, we got through and the atmosphere on Friday was electric. The cheerleading at the start really summed up where we are at here at GHPS with the students choreographing it all themselves and finishing all together. Whilst I didn’t announce it on the day, I was blown away by this showing of togetherness and community and found it impossible to pick a winner from that.

SCHOOL REVIEW
Yesterday, the school underwent the validation visit for the Public School Review, that all schools are required to submit. This is a self-assessment of where we believe the school to be at across the six domains of Teaching Quality, Student Achievement and Progress, Leadership, Relationships and Partnerships, Learning Environment and Use of Resources. All school staff have been involved in preparing this over the past year and we are very proud of where we are at as a school.
