Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to Glen Huntly Primary School.

Welcome to Glen Huntly Primary School. It is a privilege to be Principal of such a wonderful school with a dedicated, caring and supportive staff and an excellent learning environment with new and 21st Century facilities.

Our motto, Learning Today Leading Tomorrow, underpins our priority to develop each student to be successful and confident in their future opportunities. Students are at the heart of every decision we make, and we believe that all students learn best when they are given the right time and support. We set high expectations for all staff and students to ensure we not only maintain being a high performing school, but we are continually striving to improve. High academic achievement is a direct result of the dedicated, professional teachers who collaborate as professional learning communities to provide an exciting learning program within an environment which is caring, friendly, respective and responsive to the needs of our students.

Students are encouraged to develop all their abilities, and interests through specialist programs in Physical Education, Music, Visual Arts, Science, and Japanese, along with numerous extra-curricular activities, such as cooking, chess, tennis, netball, guitar, band and choir. We strive for excellence through creativity, using initiative and persisting with the right work.

Glen Huntly Primary prioritises the well-being of our students and we explicitly teach our students how to build their gratitude, empathy and mindfulness.

We work toward establishing strong community-home-school relationships where we can work as a team to support and encourage each child’s learning and development. Through effective communication we will help you to understand how you can support your child to achieve growth in their learning. We believe that parents are our learners’ first teachers and have critical roles to their children’s success. There is a strong community spirit that is reflected in our many school events. We have a highly motivated and active Glen Huntly Parents Association whose contributions benefit our students.

Our commitment is to take students to their optimum potential and empower each one to continually improve and achieve success. With a focus on continual teacher learning which in turn ensures all students make measurable and ambitious gains, it is very exciting to be a member of Glen Huntly Primary School.

I welcome the opportunity to show prospective families first-hand what a great school Glen Huntly Primary is.

Warm regards,

Nerida Burns
