Gisborne Primary School has a current enrolment of 448 pupils with 34 staff. Situated in the picturesque country town of Gisborne, 53km from Melbourne, Gisborne Primary School has been serving its rural community for over 150 years. The school has developed and expanded with the township itself.
The school's beautiful grounds and facilities provide a stimulating and safe learning environment for children, where they are supported in their pursuit of excellence and in the realisation of their maximum potential.
There is a mixture of modern and historic buildings on the site. They feature well equipped technology areas, an information technology lab, library, teacher resource and withdrawal areas, a gymnasium, canteen, visual arts room and adventure playground areas.
Our school has a mixture of composite and grade level classes which recognise the role of peer support for emotional development, academic learning and modelling. The teaching approach in our school is concerned with the individuals, their abilities, responsibilities and providing our children with a happy, safe and secure learning environment. Our teachers are required to differentiate the curriculum to suit the learning needs of students. Quality planning and assessment practices are considered high priority at our school.
