Welcome to Gladstone Primary School including Kindergarten
Vision: At Gladstone Primary School we work together to develop happy, confident, motivated and independent learners in a supportive environment. The school community promotes active, responsible participation enabling all to reach their personal best.
Values: respect, caring, honesty, following rules and forgiveness.
Kindergarten philosophy: At Gladstone Kindergarten quality relationships with every child, family and our community are essential to children’s learning. We provide a challenging, nurturing, play- based learning environment where every child has the right and opportunity to achieve their potential.
Literacy and numeracy are our core business, as is providing quality teaching and learning. The Accelerated Reader program is used to engage children in reading for understanding and intervention is provided for children who require extra support.
With Early Years Services [playgroup, occasional care, CAYHS & kindergarten] on site, transitions between services and Reception are seamless for children. Early Years enjoy a new facility including a natural outdoor play space, a large deck with an enclosable ’room’, 2 learning areas, withdrawal space and kitchen facilities. Transition to Gladstone High School is supported by interactions, during year 6 & 7, throughout the year ie. Swimming carnival, Sports and Orientation days.
