What we offer

Galston Public School has a proud history of combining a caring atmosphere and strong sense of community with a clear emphasis on providing quality learning opportunities. Our enthusiastic teachers encourage students to become lifelong learners and to strive to do well academically, emotionally, socially and in creative and sporting endeavours. We foster a partnership between school and home in order to provide the opportunity for your child to achieve to the best of his or her ability. Through this partnership, together we can make primary school a positive and enjoyable experience.

With interactive whiteboards in every classroom, and wireless access, iPads and laptops in all learning spaces, we are well equipped for students and teachers to integrate technology into all key learning areas. Teachers continually develop their skills to provide opportunities for students to use technology in relevant and engaging ways to enhance future-focused learning skills.

The school is extremely well-supported through collaborative, productive relationships with parents and the wider community. As a parent of a child at our school, we welcome you to become involved in some of the various roles that parents fill. This may include participating in the Parents and Citizens Association (P&C), canteen duty, helping in the classroom, accompanying excursions or sporting trips, working bees or supporting fundraisers. Your support will continue strong traditions established over many years.

Together we strive to support our students to uphold our school values of ‘Respect, Responsibility and Personal Best’ and our school motto, ‘Honest Work and Fair Play’.

Canteen

Our canteen is volunteer-staffed and operates during recess and lunch on Mondays and Fridays for snacks and lunch orders. Orders can be placed online via Flexischools, up to 9am on the day the order is to be filled. Details of stock and prices are published twice a year, or as prices or stock items change. 

With additional volunteers, the canteen may be able to operate on other days. If you are able to volunteer in the canteen please contact the school office; your assistance would be most welcome.
