Principal's Welcome

As the foundation principal of Galungara Public School, I am excited to welcome you to our school. An experienced educator, I am passionate about the pursuit of excellence and the provision of high-quality educational opportunities for each and every student. I believe that schools should be inclusive, creative and innovative so that all those within, are given the opportunity to flourish.

As the instructional leader, I am privileged to be in the position to select and ultimately lead a team of educators who will be committed to the creation of authentic learning experiences that foster students as leaders of their learning.

Leadership that is based upon visibility, inclusiveness and collaboration will establish our school, as a place where students, staff and parents are motivated to deliver their best and continually improve.

Built on Darug land, we have worked hard throughout 2020 to create a sense of ‘connection’ in recognising the lasting impact of our First Peoples and their custodianship of the land on which the school sits through the identification of the school’s name, emblem, building identifiers, playground space and uniform.

Established in 2021 and designed to support the implementation of future focused learning with contemporary pedagogies, our school has been purposefully built and boasts ‘State of the art’ infrastructure.

With 19 flexible learning spaces, including specialist learning hubs, teaching staff will utilise collaborative teaching practices through integrated curriculum delivery, to ensure students are equipped for the challenges of tomorrow by engagement in deep, authentic learning experiences that are centred on developing students’ capacity to become successful learners.

Seamless and purposeful integration of technology into future-focused learning and teaching at Galungara Public School will provide opportunities for our students to think independently and develop skills that will enable them to flourish in a world driven by technology.

We are excited to have been invited to be a “Microsoft” school and look forward to the journey that we will undertake as we begin and grow. As a “Microsoft” school our students and staff will be working and communicating with Microsoft Teams. In addition, the use of multiple IT capabilities will allow our community to engage in our students’ learning at all levels.

At Galungara Public School we are embedding a wellbeing concept of “Growing Strong Minds” within all staff and students. Underpinned by Positive Psychology and PERMA-H, Positive Emotions, Engagement, Relationships, Meaning, Accomplishments and Health, this intrinsic and authentic framework will foster an inclusive culture across the school.

Join me to learn more about what we offer. I look forward to welcoming you personally to our school.
