What we offer

Each school in NSW offers something slightly different depending on the community. Here's what we offer for you.

School supervision

Children are supervised before school and during recess and lunchtimes. Teachers commence morning supervision at 8:25am. Students should not arrive at school before this time. It is important that students are punctual in arriving at school.

Late arrivals cause interruptions to the whole class, as well as disadvantaging the students who are late. It is beneficial for students to arrive at school approximately ten minutes before the bell sounds. This will provide a chance to get their school bags in place, speak to the teacher if necessary, and perhaps have a chat with classmates and friends. No teacher supervision is provided after school, apart from bus students who are accompanied to the bus stop by a teacher. 

Uniforms

When students wear a school uniform, they feel included in our school community.

Students, teachers, parents and carers, as well as members of our local community helped develop our school uniform to make sure it:

  • meets the requirements of occupational health and safety, anti-discrimination and equal opportunity legislation

  • includes items that are affordable, comfortable and made from easy-care and easy-wear fabrics

  • is appropriate for the full range of school activities

  • is suitable for all body shapes.

The Galston Public School uniform shop offers the complete range of uniform items required by our students, from socks to hats and everything in between.

In addition to new uniform items, we also offer a wide selection of pre-loved uniforms, at extremely resonable prices. These items are available in the uniform shop.   

Canteen

All canteens in NSW public schools must meet certain requirements. These include providing more healthy food and drink options – to make the healthy choice an easy choice for students. Visit Healthy school canteens to learn more.

Our canteen is volunteer-staffed and operates during recess and lunchtime on Wednesdays for snacks and on Fridays for lunch orders and snacks. With additional volunteers, the canteen may be able to operate on other days. Details of stock and prices are sent home twice a year, or as prices or stock items change. These changes are also highlighted in our school newsletter and school website. If you are able to volunteer in the canteen please contact the office, your assistance would be most welcome.
