Welcome to Spring Gully Primary School
Spring Gully Primary School is located in a picturesque urban area five kilometres from the centre of Bendigo. The natural setting is complemented by the close proximity of a state park, bushland reserves, sporting ovals, tennis courts, bike and bushland trails. Spring Gully Primary School has a current enrolment of 400 students.
In the 2016-17 State Budget, Spring Gully Primary School shared in planning funding that allowed the school to begin to scope and plan building works. The school received $5.1 million in the 2017-18 Budget and $2.17 million in the 2018/2019 Budget to deliver these plans, including extensive upgrades to the school site and outdoor learning areas. The building works commenced in March 2018 and the new school buildings and landscaping were officially opened in November 2019.
The students are at the centre of all decisions and their active involvement in this process is valued. The students are given many opportunities to develop their leadership skills and to make meaningful contributions to the school and wider community.
The school places particular emphasis on the development of literacy and numeracy skills for all children and the development of computer technologies being incorporated into daily curriculum presentation. The inclusion of specialist programs in Art, Languages (German), Physical Education and Music enables a well-rounded curriculum. Curriculum planning and presentation actively cater for differentiation and for a diversity of learning styles.
All teachers are members of a Professional Learning Community and play an active role in implementing the school Annual Implementation Plan and developing the individual and collective capacity of our staff.
Parent participation is highly valued and features in a wide variety of areas including classroom programs, School Council, Parent Club, fundraising, camps and excursions. This partnership is further developed with weekly classroom emails, the whole school weekly newsletter, information evenings and special events. Spring Gully Primary School also fosters a community of learners where everyone is valued and has opportunities to reach their personal best.
I look forward to welcoming new enrolments and working with all students towards the future. Guaranteed enrolment is offered to neighbourhood children.
