WELLBEING AT GOWRIE ST

The emotional and physical wellbeing of children is pivotal to their success at school, as they develop into adolescents, and in their future lives. When children are happy, engaged and supported they are more likely to be able to competently and positively navigate life’s challenges. When experiencing a sense of connectedness with their community, school and other individuals, children increase their social literacy and are positioned to thrive and develop into well-balanced and successful young adults.

At Gowrie St Primary we believe that students will reach their full educational potential when they are happy, healthy and safe.  We aims to provide an inclusive, supportive and positive school culture in order for students to flourish in their formal education and beyond.
