Our Logo represents four famous Australian explorers, who lend their names to the house teams at Glen Huntly Primary School (BATMAN, FLINDERS, HUME and MITCHELL) and the ship depicted at the centre of the logo is the barque “Glen Huntly”.
Glen Huntly Primary is proud of providing a caring and challenging learning environment for all of our students, which is enabling them to reach their full potential, become life- long learners and effective citizens in a global world.
The dedicated and motivated teachers are inspired and passionate and place high value on having a major positive effect on all students and providing individualised differentiated learning for each student. Glen Huntly Primary School is committed to the Real Schools program, which implements Restorative Practices across the school, to maximise student engagement and wellbeing and social justice approaches.
Our high academic achievement in Literacy and Numeracy, is attributable to our teaching and learning program which incorporates explicit and structured Big 6 strategies and utilising extensive current ICT learning approaches.
All teachers comprehensively determine all students’ individual prior knowledge and readiness to learn, whilst developing a culture of high expectations, by modelling and setting challenging and personalised learning goals.
An exemplary Visual and Performing Arts program is well established with an annual Art Show exhibition and Cabaret, proudly showcasing all student work and artistic endeavours. The recent addition of our resident student rock band, The Party Hats, has been a wonderful experience for all involved.
Our environmental sustainability program incorporates a cooking and gardening program, caring for our chooks, outdoor learning in our vegetable and bush tucker gardens and waste-wise initiatives.
The spacious, well maintained grounds include a separate Junior site for Prep – 2 classes and a Senior site for Grades 3 – 6. The Activities Centre incorporates the Before and After School Care program and a functional and exciting space for special events.
The parent community is exceptional and proactively involved in a positive and valued partnership, with the Glen Huntly Parents Association, Crafty Mums, Buildings and Grounds and Carnivale committees, being very active contributors to the life and functions of the school. The approved Capital Works Project of $390,000 will be underway in 2015.
