GHPS has a number of Specialist Programs that feature as part of the curriculum.
The Glen Huntly Primary School Library program allows for students to foster a love of reading by discovering different text types and topics. Students in Prep to Grade 6 attend a weekly Library session to borrow books and listen to stories.
The students have the chance to read books by various authors and discuss and interpret these stories. They also get to investigate science, history and geography ideas and expand upon their comprehension of these topics using the books read in class.
By reading different types of books, from fiction to non-fiction texts, the students are able to develop their literacy skills by making connections from the text to themselves, other texts and the world.
G.H.P.S PHYSICAL EDUCATION & SPORT MISSION STATEMENT 2020
CREATED BY THE STUDENTS
In P.E. and sport this year, we understand our class is a community. Our community is full of role models who help us achieve, practice resilience and demonstrate sportsmanship. We are happy, kind and fair. We respect ourselves, each other, the teacher and the equipment we use. In P.E. we are ready for the lesson, ready to learn and persist. We are playing, we are loud and having fun! During P.E. we work as a team, try our best and never give up!

During Education Week we host an annual Art Show to exhibit the students wonderful work, including sculptures and paintings.
The Cooking program has commenced for 2020 with great success and fervour and much enthusiasm from the students. Fiona Davey has conducted fantastic hands-on cooking sessions with parental involvement, as well as class teachers and teacher aides participating.
Each class from Prep to Grade 6 participates in a cooking class once a term. These cooking classes wouldn’t be the same without the help from our wonderful parent community, classroom teachers and education support staff.
