Welcome from Mr Alan Fairweather - Principal
‘Creating Learning Opportunities through Quality Education.’
Welcome to the Goonawarra Primary School's webpage for 2016. I trust that you will find our webpage both informative and a helpful avenue through which to learn about the school.
Goonawarra is nestled on the southern outskirts of Sunbury adjacent to the Rolling Meadows estate. It is a vibrant community which features the school, a health centre, a neighbourhood house, a very active preschool complex, a community hall, medical centre, pharmacy, dentist and a group of specialty shops, food outlets and sporting facilities.
The school has a current enrolment of 364 students, which is an increase of 40 students since last year. The students are spread across 17 classrooms with an average of 21.4 per room.
The school plays a major role within the community as the hub and meeting point for many people within the area.
Facilities include well-resourced classrooms, a large gymnasium, a very attractive and child friendly library and a performing and visual arts venue. All classrooms have their own interactive whiteboard which are used extensively to enhance educational learning opportunities for students. All students across the school have access to ipads and laptop computers.
