Welcome to Gawler East Primary School
On behalf of the Gawler East Primary School Community I offer you a very warm welcome. Gawler East Primary School R-7 is a government funded school for the Department for Education and Child Development providing quality education from Reception to Year 7 children. We are part of the Greater Gawler Partnership.
The inclusive culture of the school is shaped by Positive Education (whole Partnership focus) and four agreed key values; Respect, Honesty, Responsibility and Fairness with staff, students and the parent community working closely together to support each other through the enactment of these values.
At Gawler East Primary School we believe that it is extremely important to prepare students for the future and the skills they will need to be successful in an ever changing globalised world. "The primary aim of the education system should be to develop and apply key life skills such as leadership, communication, teamwork and community involvement in order to overcome challenges and solve future problem" (Student Shout Out 2012).
Gawler East Primary School has a broad range of teaching and learning programs, restorative behaviour development practices and a strong focus on wellbeing. Our staff focus on your child as an individual and recognise his/her strengths, experiences and needs. We invite you to work in partnership with us as we build on the foundations which you as parents/caregivers have established at home and work together to make your child’s education an enriching and engaging experience.
The school offers Out of School Hours Care and Vacation Care Services. There is a Preschool and Childcare Centre situated adjacent to the school.
Please do not hesitate to contact the school in regard to any question or query that you may have. I would be pleased to elaborate on any aspect of our school as well as organise a school tour if you require.
