Landcare Grant


Glen Huntly Primary School were very excited about winning the Victorian Junior Landcare and Biodiversity Grant.

This money is being used to create a wildlife passage in our large garden pots and to celebrate our new indigenous House Teams – Kurwan, Bael, Pike and Garrawang. It has also allowed us to engage renowned Indigenous artist Simone Thomson and her son Sean.

Simone is a Melbourne based Aboriginal artist who draws inspiration from the abundant textures and colours of this beautiful land, along with the ancestral bonds she has to the Birrarung (Yarra River) and Dhungala (the Murray River).

Simone painted one of our large concrete pots with earthy tones and depicted gathering places that also represented suns. She drew smaller circles which represented the students travelling from far and wide, from their own diverse backgrounds, to our gathering place – our school. The curves represent people sitting from a bird’s eye view.

Simone did an incredible artwork and even drew a boomerang hoping she can one day return for more painting when possible. We hope so!


We are all looking forward to seeing our students perform this week.

Literacy and Numeracy Week

Literacy & Numeracy Week is observed annually in August and September each year, and this year it takes place from August 29 to September 4. It is an initiative that was started by the Australian government to encourage reading, writing, and numeracy in students as well as recognize their achievements and the work of teachers and parents in the fields.

Book Week

We celebrate Book Week with our Parade on Thursday.

We look forward to seeing all of the amazing outfits.

Parents and friends welcome.
